Biography

Chad Brinker enters his sixth season with the Packers’ pro personnel department after joining the team Jan. 31, 2010. He was promoted May 23, 2012, after two seasons as a scouting assistant. In his role as a pro scout, Brinker assists player personnel in various areas, including evaluating both college and professional players, advance scouting of upcoming opponents, in-season tryouts, and attending college pro days.

The 35-year-old Brinker originally entered the NFL in 2003 as a non-drafted free agent out of Ohio University with the New York Jets. He scored two touchdowns in preseason play before being waived in the team’s final roster reduction. Brinker was re-signed by the Jets following the ’03 season and was allocated to NFL Europe. He lined up at running back for the Cologne Centurions during the 2004 season before suffering a concussion in his third contest. Brinker was placed on injured reserve and was later released by the Jets.

Brinker was a four-year starter and two-time All-Mid-American Conference selection at running back for the Ohio Bobcats.  As a senior, he ran for a career-best 1,099 yards and remains Ohio’s sixth all-time leading rusher with 2,826 career yards. His 30 total touchdowns rank third in school history, and he also remains near the top in nearly every rushing category despite missing seven games as a junior after having an arachnoid cyst removed from his skull.

Brinker also competed in track for the Bobcats, running the 60-meter indoor and 100-meter outdoor. He received a specialized-studies degree in exercise science as an undergraduate at Ohio and recently earned a master’s degree in sports administration from his alma mater. 

Following his football career, Brinker entered the business world, working for Merck as a pharmaceutical sales representative and then later as an account manager for Stryker Medical. His passion for football never left him as he remained close to the game by also serving as the radio color analyst for Ohio University football from 2006-08. During the 2009 season, he was an assistant football coach at Westerville Central High School in Columbus, Ohio, coaching running backs and defensive backs.

A four-year letterman at Martins Ferry (Ohio) High School, Brinker was a finalist for the Mr. Ohio Football Award and a USA Today All-American.  He twice earned first-team all-state honors and also lettered multiple times in basketball, baseball and track.

Brinker was born Nov. 5, 1979, in Wheeling, W.Va. He resides in Green Bay with his wife, Rachelle, and their daughter, Madison, 3, and infant daughter, Kennedy.
