The Browns will be hiring longtime Packers personnel executive Eliot Wolf, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

Gutekunst was scheduled to interview for the Houston Texans' general manager position on Sunday. Wolf ultimately made a decision to join Cleveland after interviewing with the team Tuesday. "His time under the direction of former Packers general managers Ron Wolf and Ted Thompson will undoubtedly serve him well as we work toward our next Super Bowl championship..." He has held six different titles in his 14 seasons with the Packers.

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.

General manager John Dorsey has added Packers director of football operations Eliot Wolf as his assistant general manager the team confirmed to 92.3 The Fan Wednesday. Owner Jimmy Haslam will surely be hoping Dorsey and Wolf can lead the Browns back to respectability with haste. After leaving the Packers in 1998, Dorsey rejoined the team in 2000 under the same title. In that time, Dorsey worked with Wolf's son, Eliot.

Wolf will join a revamped front office looking to turn the tide on the most downtrodden franchise in the NFL.

Wolf will be joining another familiar face from the Packers, Alonzo Highsmith. "We're going to build this team the right way and to be a part of that from the ground up is going to be special".

A former National Football League running back, Highsmith spent 19 years in Green Bay's scouting department.

The Browns are entering arguably the most important offseason the team has had in many years. 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. They enter the offseason loaded with draft capital and cap space.
