Director of College Scouting

Biography

Jon-Eric Sullivan begins his 14th season with the Packers and second as the director of college scouting after being promoted on June 16, 2016. Sullivan previously served as a college scout covering the Central Plains region (2008-11) and the Southeast region (2012-15) after working as the team’s National Football Scouting representative to the annual NFL Scouting Combine and authoring evaluations of all prospective seniors in the Southwest region.

Sullivan joined the team’s football operations department on July 12, 2004, having previously served as a scouting intern during Green Bay’s 2003 training camp. 

Sullivan played his junior and senior seasons (1998-99) as a wide receiver at Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, N.C. As a senior, he was named to the all-conference team after leading the Bulldogs with 43 receptions. Previously, he played at the University of South Carolina from 1995-97 before transferring to Gardner-Webb. 

Sullivan attended high school at Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy, where he was an all-state defensive back his junior year, pacing state players with nine interceptions, and then an all-state receiver as a senior. Sullivan lettered twice in football, while also receiving two letters each in indoor and outdoor track. As a senior, he was all-state in track as a member of the state-champion 400-meter relay team. 

Following his college football career, Sullivan served as a student-assistant receivers coach at Gardner-Webb for one season. Though officially listed as a student assistant, he actually served as the primary position coach for the receivers. 

Sullivan obtained a B.A. degree in social science from Gardner-Webb in December 2000, and then worked three years (2001-04) for GMAC’s sales and credit administration departments before joining the Packers’ staff. 

His father, Jerry Sullivan, who has 40-plus years of coaching experience, was most recently the wide receivers coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Sullivan and his wife, Jennifer, reside in Green Bay with their three daughters, Samantha, 5, Mia, 3, and Cecilia, 1.
