What does hiring Alonzo Highsmith mean for the Browns? Bud vs. Doug

What does hiring Alonzo Highsmith mean for the Browns? Bud vs. Doug

After serving as a scouting intern for the Packers in 1997 and a scouting assistant for the Kansas City Chiefs one year later, he was hired by Green Bay and has been with the team ever since.

Ron Wolf and his son Eliot pose with Wolf's bust during the NFL Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium on August 8, 2015 in Canton, Ohio.

The younger Wolf, who reportedly had a job opportunity in Oakland with former Packers executive and current general manager Reggie McKenzie, had been the director of football operations in Green Bay since 2016.

Cleveland now has a very distinct Green Bay feel to its front office.




Finally, Ken Kovash will move into a vice president position in the strategy department after spending the past two years as vice president of player personnel.

Highsmith, meanwhile, spent 19 years in the Packers' personnel department.

So the Packers managed to piss just about everyone else in the front office off in hiring Brian Gutekunst as general manager. Dorsey (2000-2012) and Eliot (2004-17) were there for part of it. He's been a big reason for the consistent success the Packers have experienced over the last decade. A source confirmed to The Athletic that Texans quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan was in Berea to interview for the Browns' vacant offensive coordinator position Wednesday. With everyone in the front office bringing successful experience and a unified message into the building, Jackson will need to get on board and quick. Hence the team with more NFL titles than any other in league annals was in search for his replacement. The 44-year-old will take over the role for Ted Thompson, who will remain as senior advisor to football operations with the Packers.
