The Green Bay Packers named Milt Hendrickson director – football operations. The announcement was made Thursday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.
Hendrickson is entering his 15th season in the NFL and first with the Packers. His first NFL experience came as a training-camp intern for Green Bay in 2004. Hendrickson went on to work 14 seasons in the personnel department of the Baltimore Ravens. During his time in Baltimore (2005-18), the Ravens won a Super Bowl and four division titles, appeared in the playoffs eight times and won 138 games (including postseason), the sixth most in the NFL over that span. With the Ravens, Hendrickson was a player personnel assistant in 2005, worked primarily with the pro personnel staff in 2006-07, was promoted to Midwest area scout after the 2008 NFL Draft, was named mid-regional scout following the 2013 NFL Draft and was promoted to national scout after the 2016 NFL Draft.
Prior to joining the Ravens, Hendrickson was a coach in high school and college. After serving as the team captain for both the football and baseball teams at Luther College, he went on to earn his master’s degree in exercise and sports science-sports administration from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. In 1996, he was the assistant offensive line coach at UW-La Crosse. From 1997-99, Hendrickson was the head varsity football coach at De Soto (Wis.) High School while teaching language arts and social studies at De Soto Middle School. He then went back to Luther to coach the offensive line/running backs from 2000-01 and then served as the associate head coach/special teams coordinator/offensive line coach from 2002-04.
