Eliot Wolf will interview with 49ers on Thursday for GM job

Jan 2, 2017 at 5:32 PM--


Eliot Wolf, the director of football operations for the Green Bay Packers, will interview with the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday for their open general manager position, per Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY Sports and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.



Wolf joined the Packers as a pro personnel assistant in 2004. He became assistant director of pro personnel in 2008 and assistant director of player personnel in 2011. In 2015, Wolf became the director of player personnel and in March of 2016, he was promoted to his current position with the Packers.

Eliot Wolf is the son of former NFL general manager Ron Wolf. "Most experts seem to think [Eliot] Wolf is next in line to take over the Packers when current GM Ted Thompson, who will be 64 in a few weeks, retires," said our own Jason Bertolucci. "Nonetheless, Albert Breer of The MMQB has connected the 49ers to the younger Wolf."

"Once Seattle's John Schneider signed his extension, the assumption became that Wolf would succeed Thompson in Green Bay, maybe very soon," said Breer back in December. "The rumor mill has also tied him to the Niners."

In addition to Wolf, the 49ers will interview Packers director of college scouting Brian Gutekunst, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

San Francisco 49ers tight end Jordan Reed had one of the best catches of the season on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Unfortunately, it didn't result in a first down, nor did the game end in a victory for his Niners. The one-handed catch came in the second quarter and featured Reed hauling in the Nick Mullens-thrown football just inches above the turf. Oh my. @JR86📺: #SFvsNO on FOX📱: NFL app // Yahoo Sports app:
