    Thompson, 51, was named executive vice president, general manager and director of football operations, Packers team president Bob Harlan announced in a press release issued by the team.

    Mike Sherman remains as Packers head coach and retains his title as executive vice president


    They can't both be exec vp

    You can have multiple executive vp's in a corp. We do at work anyway.

    Maybe Harlan did this to make Mike feel a little better about losing the GMs role. Possibly with it like this Thompson might not be able to fire Sherman.

    I don't know if Thompson is a good or bad hire, but I find it odd that Wolf didn't promote him in 1999 if he was so good, and hired Ken Herock instead from Atlanta, who was the guy who traded away Favre.

    I hope Thompson is the right guy though.

    Ken Herock was Wolf's friend and you know in buisness friendship can go a long way.
