Browns add Eliot Wolf to the rebuilt front office

Browns add Eliot Wolf to the rebuilt front office

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.

He is the son of Hall of Fame general manager Ron Wolf, who held the position for Green Bay for 10 seasons, building the team that won Super Bowl XXXI.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Wolf has accepted a four-year deal to join the Cleveland Browns front office.

"Eliot has been a fine executive in this league for some time now".

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

The Packers had a change in the front office with general manager Ted Thompson stepping down from his role.

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.

The new-look Cleveland Browns' front office is beginning to take shape.

Highsmith, meanwhile, spent 19 years in the Packers' personnel department. Dorsey (2000-2012) and Eliot (2004-17) were there for part of it. "Adding Eliot and Alonzo to our personnel leadership group, that already includes Andrew Berry, will strengthen us and help us develop into the type of personnel department we need to achieve the success our great fans deserve".

The Browns are now setup for the front office to do just that. The transaction was announced Wednesday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst. Jackson discussed the possibility of adding an offensive coordinator multiple times in December and early this month but never committed to it.

Wolf spent 14 years with the Packers, the last two as the team's director of football operations. He'll be the assistant GM for the Browns.
