Green Bay Packers’ director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst will take over as the team’s general manager. Numerous media reports say it’s a five-year deal. The team has not yet confirmed it. The promotion came only after the Seattle Seahawks denied the Packers’ request to talk with their general manager, John Schneider. Schneider is a former Packers staffer, and grew up in De Pere. Gutekunst was in Houston, preparing to interview for the Texans’ GM job, when the deal came together.

Our Finlandia University basketball coverage continues Wednesday, when both teams host St. Scholastica. Our pregame show will start at 5:10 on 99.3 The Lift, with the men’s tip-off at 5:30, and the women’s tip-off at 7:30.
