  • Texans general manager Rick Smith left and owner Bob McNair right use Bill O'Brien's news conference to recite their high expectations in the short term

The man replacing him will come from a similar mold, as the Packers made a decision to give in-house candidate Brian Gutekunst as their new general manager.

Multiple NFL sources including NFL Networks Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero are reporting that the Green Bay Packers have selected Brian Gutekunst as the teams next General Manager, replacing Ted Thompson who is being moved to a new role in the club's front office.

Gutekunst spent the last two seasons as the director of player personnel after spending 17 seasons in the team's scouting department. The Houston Texans flew him in Saturday and planned to interview him for their vacancy on Sunday, but he took the job in Green Bay instead.

Switch is the fastest-selling home game system in United States history
The Nintendo Switch on display at a pop-up display room in Madison Square Park, New York, March 2017. The previous record holder was the Nintendo Wii at 4 million units, in the same duration.

It's a reported 5-year deal. He spent his first 13 seasons as a college scout.

The bigger news what that means back in Green Bay. He could join former Senior Personnel Analyst Alonzo Highsmith who joined John Dorsey's scouting staff in Cleveland last week.

As for the two other in-house candidates for the Packers GM job Russ Ball and Eliot Wolf that didn't get the job, it sounds like the Packers still want to keep them around. In addition to Gutekunst's promotion, another familiar face, Joe Philbin, is reportedly returning for a second stint under coach Mike McCarthy after serving as offensive coordinator from 2007-2011.
