Brian Gutekunst
Director of College Scouting

Biography

Promoted to director of college scouting on May 23, 2012, Brian Gutekunst enters his 16th season with the Green Bay Packers’ player personnel department. He spent his first 13 seasons with the club as a college scout, serving as an East Coast regional scout for his first two years (1999-2000), before switching to the Southeast region (2001-2011).

Possessor of prior professional scouting and college coaching experience upon joining Green Bay on a full-time basis late in 1998, Gutekunst gained his first NFL experience in the summer of 1995, when he assisted the coaching staff of the New Orleans Saints with the offensive line during training camp. Gutekunst’s initial exposure to the Packers came in the summer of 1997, when he worked as an intern in the team’s scouting department.

His first full-time appointment in professional scouting was in 1998 as a scouting assistant for the Kansas City Chiefs. After one year with the Chiefs, Gutekunst returned to the Packers when he was named as a college scout Dec. 30, 1998, for the East Coast by then-Executive Vice President/General Manager Ron Wolf.

The 41-year-old Gutekunst earlier had played two years of college football for the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. He then became an assistant coach for the team during his final two years at the school (1995-96) after a shoulder injury cut short his playing career. Serving as a linebackers coach during the 1995 season, he helped the school to the Division III national championship as the Eagles finished with an unblemished record of 14-0. Gutekunst majored in sports management.

His father, John, recently retired after spending two seasons as the secondary coach at Columbia University. The elder Gutekunst previously was the head coach at the University of Minnesota from 1985-92, taking over the reins of the Golden Gophers program when Lou Holtz left to assume the head-coaching position at Notre Dame.

Gutekunst was born July 19, 1973, in Raleigh, N.C. He and his wife, Jen, reside in Green Bay with their daughters, Marley, 9, Joie, 8, and Kacey, 3, and son, Michael, 5. In his spare time, Gutekunst enjoys playing golf, reading and spending time at the beach.
