Brian Gutekunst interviewed for the Bills' vacant GM position, but the team instead hired the Panthers' Brandon Beane. The front office of the Green Bay Packers has dodged another bullet. On Tuesday, the Buffalo Bills hired Carolina Panthers executive Brandon Beane as their new general manager, a position for which Packers director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst had also interviewed.
Gutekunst has received a tremendous amount of interest this offseason. He interviewed for the GM vacancy with the San Francisco 49ers, appearing at one point to have become the leading candidate for the position before pulling his name out of consideration. Gutekunst also pitched himself as Ryan Grigson's replacement with the Indianapolis Colts.
While the Packers have retained one of their top executives for the foreseeable future, it seems just a matter of time before another team hires Gutekunst to lead its front office. Green Bay general manager Ted Thompson has given no public indication of when he plans to retire, and a number of potential successors -- namely former Packers executive John Dorsey and current director of football operations Eliot Wolf -- appear to have the inside track to replace him.
Gutekunst has spent nearly two decades working in the Packers personnel department. Before his most recent promotion, he served as the director of college scouting and as a regional scout.

It makes me wonder if the Packers front office is as great as we think it is. Even thought they have been interviewed by other organizations many times they always seem to come up short. Hooray for the Packers I think.

Agreed. Whenever I see these loaded phrases like "dodged a bullet," I always wonder why everyone assumes the Green Bay front office is so special that the loss of personnel is necessarily something to be feared. Especially given this organization's seeming inability to field a defense that can stand up in the playoffs, maybe it wouldn't be such a bad thing to unload some of our talent on other teams and bring in fresh blood. Preferably blood that's a little more aggressive and doesn't need to have its back up against a wall before it starts asserting itself.

Incidentally, the name Gutekunst means "good art," for what that's worth.
