NFL Network's Ian Rapoport: Packers hire Brian Gutekunst as new GM

Report: Philbin returning to Packers staff

Brian Gutekunst, current director of player personnel, will fill the GM role previously held by Ted Thompson, according to National Football League reporter Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero. He was promoted to director of of college scouting in 2012 and director of player personnel in March of 2016.

Thompson had been the team's GM since 2005 and will assume a role of senior advisor to football operations.

With Brian Gutekunst securing the job, only five days after it officially was open, Ball's candidacy has collapsed.

It didn't take all that long for the Green Bay Packers to find Ted Thompson's replacement as general manager.

Gutekunst has been with the organization for 19 years, rising up the ranks from college scout.

The move was likely spurred by the Houston Texans' interest in Gutekunst.

He was also considered one of the frontrunners for the job with the San Francisco 49ers a year ago that eventually went to John Lynch.

Gutekunst has been with the Packers since 1999.

The Packers have not officially announced a hiring.

Gutekunst previously served as Green Bay's director of player personnel. That worked for a while, but with all of Green Bay's gridiron success during the Mike McCarthy era, the picks weren't panning out as they had been.
