Quotes on Ron Wolf's election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame


"I would like to offer my congratulations to Ron on his selection into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The leadership and vision he brought to the Green Bay Packers continues to serve as an example for all of us in the organization. Personally, he has been a great friend and mentor and someone to who I owe a lot. This is a well-deserved honor for Ron and a great day for him, Edie, the Wolf family, the Packers and our fans."

-Packers EVP, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson

"The turnaround Ron Wolf directed for the Green Bay Packers is probably as significant as any in the history of the NFL. In the 20 years before he joined the team, we had five winning seasons and two playoff appearances. We weren't playing at a high level. Ron changed the culture for the Packers and turned it into a positive, winning environment. His hiring of Mike Holmgren, trading for Brett Favre and signing Reggie White were instrumental in our success. We were winning again, with character and dignity. It was an amazing turnaround and without Ron it would not have happened. I have no doubt about it."

-Packers Chairman Emeritus Bob Harlan **

Wolf was selected for induction into the Hall of Fame on Saturday as part of the class of 2015. He will be inducted in Canton, Ohio, this summer along with the rest of the class of '15.

"Congratulations to Ron Wolf for this tremendous and deserving honor. I owe much to Ron as he traded for me and brought me to the Green Bay Packers. As players, we knew Ron worked hard to continually make the team better and gave the Packers great credibility in the NFL. He built Green Bay into a championship team that contended each year. His legacy of success continues today."

-Former Packers Quarterback Brett Favre (1992-2007)

"As a first-time head coach in the National Football League, I was fortunate to be partnered with Ron Wolf, who was not only the best general manager in the business, but also very much a mentor to me in all things about the NFL. In all our years together, while we didn't agree on everything, we never had a harsh moment. Anything that he decided, as my boss with my help, was in the best interest of the Green Bay Packers. It was a privilege to work with him and I consider him a good friend."

-Former Packers Head Coach Mike Holmgren (1992-1998)
