A new general manager usually means a new or revamped staff in player personnel, and that is the case for the Green Bay Packers.
General manager Brian Gutekunst today announced several changes to the Packers’ player personnel department.
Jon-Eric Sullivan has been promoted to co-director of player personnel alongside John Wojciechowski. Sullivan has been with the Packers for 15 seasons and most recently served as the director of college scouting. Wojciechowski is entering his seventh season with Green Bay and was the director of pro personnel last season.
Two names in the new player personnel department that will look familiar to fans are Charlie Peprah and Brandian Ross. Peprah played safety for the Packers when they won Super Bowl XLV and was the leading tackler in that game. Peprah returns as a college scout for a second season.
Ross joins the front office as a college scout after serving as a scouting assistant last season. Ross played defensive back for the Packers from 2011-2012.
Pat Moore is the only true newcomer to the Packers after serving as a college scout for the Cleveland Browns. He will have the the same role in Green Bay as both franchises continue swapping staff members after Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith departed when Gutekunst was named GM.
