Eliot Wolf is the Director-Football Operations for the Green Bay Packers.
Wolf was born on March 21, 1982 in Oakland, California. He graduated from Notre Dame Academy in Green Bay, Wisconsin in 2000 and from the University of Miami in 2003.[1] Wolf’s father, Ron Wolf, was General Manager of the Packers.[2]
Wolf joined the Packers as a pro personnel assistant in 2004. He became Assistant Director of Pro Personnel in 2008 and Assistant Director of Player Personnel in 2011 before assuming his current position in 2012. On January 2, 2015, Wolf was promoted to Director of Player Personnel. On March 21, 2016, Wolf was promoted to Director-Football Operations.[3] In April 2016, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Brian Manzullo of the Detroit Free Press reported that Wolf was a candidate for the vacant Detroit Lions General Manager position, but the Packers denied the Lions’ request to interview him.[4][5]
Following the final regular season game of the 2016 season the San Francisco 49ers fired their General Manager Trent Baalke, prompting sportswriter Ian Rapoport to highlight Wolf as a potential new General Manager of the team.[6] On January 3, 2016 Tom Pelissero of USA Today reported that the 49ers would interview Wolf for the General Manager position.[7][8]
Wolf has been described as on the “short list” of candidates for General Manager positions around the NFL, including in Green Bay as the successor to Ted Thompson.[9][10]
