Packers GM Ted Thompson moving to senior advisor role
Ted Thompson will leave his role as Green Bay Packers general manager and transition into a senior advisor role.
The Green Bay Packers are on the hunt for a new general manager after announcing Ted Thompson is moving to a role as senior advisor to football operations.
Thompson has served the Packers as executive vice president, GM and director of football operations for the past 13 seasons, aiding their Super Bowl XLV triumph over the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010.
Team president and CEO Mark Murphy announced the 64-year-old will transition into a new role.
"I want to thank Ted for his tireless efforts as the general manager of the Green Bay Packers for these past 13 seasons," said Murphy.
"Under his guidance, the Packers enjoyed a remarkable run of success, one that included our 13th world championship, four NFC Championship appearances and eight consecutive postseason berths.
"The organisation, our fans and our community were fortunate to have had one of the NFL's all-time great general managers leading our football operations.
"Fortunately, Ted will remain involved in our personnel department as we work to win another championship.
"We will begin an immediate search for the next general manager of the Green Bay Packers."
Thompson said: "It's been a great honour to serve as the Green Bay Packers' general manager for the past 13 years. This is a special place and we've had some success along the way, but it's the relationships that I value most.
"I look forward to supporting this team in my new role as we strive to win another championship."
