49ers in Green Bay today to interview Wolf and Gutekunst

Jan 5, 2017 at 8:06 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are in Green Bay today to interview Packers director of football operations Eliot Wolf and director of college scouting Brian Gutekunst, per NFL insider Ian Rapoport. Both are being considered for the vacant general manager position.


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.
