According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Packers will interview Brian Gutekunst, the team's director of player personnel, on Friday.

Gutekunst spent the last two seasons as the director of player personnel after spending 17 seasons in the team's scouting department.

By hiring Gutekunst, Murphy passed over Russ Ball, the team's Vice-President of Football Operations/Player Finance and Eliot Wolf, the son of former GM Ron Wolf, now the team's Director of Football Operations.

The Packers have had a busy offseason so far, with former GM Ted Thompson moving to a new role as senior advisor to football operations and coach Mike McCarthy getting a two-year extension.

The person, identified as Debkumar Maity is reportedly a mentally deranged youth from East Midnapore district in West Bengal. The accused's family members claim that he was mentally unstable and did wrongful acts in the influence of this disorder.

Gutekunst, 44, is entering his 20th year in the NFL, having gotten his start as an intern under Pro Football Hall of Fame general manager Ron Wolf in 1997.

Gutekunst has spent 19 years working in the Packers' personnel department. He returned to the Packers as a college scout on December 30, 1998, when he was hired by then-general manager and Hall of Famer Ron Wolf.

Gutekunst played football at UW-La Crosse for two years, then became an assistant coach for the team after a shoulder injury cut his college career short. He's also been mentioned as a candidate for the Texans General Manager opening created when Rick Smith stepped away from the team this week. The request for the Green Bay native was denied.

The Packers had several strong in-house candidates including Gutekunst. Dorsey was hired as the Browns' GM last month, and Highsmith left the Packers to join Dorsey last week.
