The new Packers GM played two years of college football for the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse until a shoulder injury cut his college career short.

Gutekunst, who has been with the Packers in a scouting or personnel role for the past 19 seasons, was slated to interview for the Texans' GM vacancy Sunday and made the trip to Houston before accepting his new role with Green Bay. There are reports that Ball will stay on, working on contracts and cap matters, while Wolf sounds like he could be leaving Green Bay.
