Packer Sources say Mike Sherman is losing his GM job but will stay on as coach

A team source is confirming published reports that Green Bay Packers president Bob Harlan plans to strip coach Mike Sherman of his general manager duties and will try to hire Seattle Seahawks vice president Ted Thompson as his replacement.

The source tells The Associated Press today that Harlan is pursuing Thompson, a Ron Wolf protege with strong ties to the Packers organization.

Thompson's contract with the Seahawks expires in June. The Seahawks couldn't prevent him from interviewing or accepting the Packers job as long as Harlan offers him full authority over football operations -- including the ability to hire and fire the head coach.

Sherman is 53-and-27 in the regular season since becoming Packers coach in 2000, but he's only 2-and-4 in the playoffs, including the only two home postseason losses in franchise history.
