Packers General Manager Ted Thompson Signed To New Contract

Posted Feb 11, 2011

The Green Bay Packers have signed Ted Thompson, the team’s Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, to a new, multi-year contract, team President/CEO Mark Murphy announced Friday.

Thompson, who recently concluded his sixth season as the leader of the team’s football operations, has built the Packers into one of the NFL’s strongest young teams. That was highlighted by a Super Bowl XLV win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday as Green Bay became only the second No. 6 seed since 1990 to win the world championship.

“We are thrilled to have Ted lead our football operations for the foreseeable future,” said Murphy. “He has done an outstanding job of building this team. We worked on this and reached an agreement in December, and we are pleased to be able to make the announcement today.”

“This is a great organization and I am very humbled and appreciative,” said Thompson. “Green Bay is a special place and I am honored to work with such a great group of people that have all contributed to our success.”

Since taking over general manager duties in 2005, Thompson has built the foundation for a Green Bay team that has made three playoff appearances in the past four seasons and has posted a 40-24 (.625) regular-season record since 2007. Of the Packers’ 53 active-roster players in Super Bowl XLV against Pittsburgh, 49 were acquired by Thompson, with 26 of them drafted during his tenure.

The 58-year-old Thompson is a native of Atlanta, Texas. He was a three-year starter at Southern Methodist University and enjoyed a 10-year playing career as a linebacker with the Houston Oilers (1975-84). Thompson previously served an eight-year tenure with Green Bay’s personnel department (1992-99) and five seasons in Seattle (2000-04) as the team’s vice president of football operations before re-joining the Packers in 2005.
