GREEN BAY - Former Packers general manager Ron Wolf has been selected for induction into the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame.
Wolf will be inducted on Jan. 24, 2019, along with former Milwaukee Bucks star Marques Johnson and Herbert Kohler, Jr. The event will take place in downtown Milwaukee.
The three make up the 69th anniversary class of the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame, which was founded in 1951 and revived a few years ago. Former Packers star Donald Driver, a Hall member and a 1999 seventh-round draft pick of Wolf’s, is the organization’s board president.
Green Bay’s GM for a decade beginning in 1991, Wolf hired Mike Holmgren as head coach, traded for quarterback Brett Favre and signed defensive end Reggie White in free agency. All the moves were instrumental in making the Packers a contender again and culminated in a championship season in 1996 and the Super Bowl XXXI title.
Under Wolf, the Packers qualified for the playoffs six consecutive years and went to back-to-back Super Bowls. He was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2000 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2015.
