As most of Packer Nation already knows, longtime Green Bay executive John Dorsey recently left the team to become the new GM of the Chiefs. Dorsey will have a lot of work on his hands as he prepares to deal with a 2-14 team. But, he helped the Packers become a consistent winner. Perhaps he can do the same in KC.
Packer GM Ted Thompson released this statement;
“I would like to thank John Dorsey for his 27 years of service to the Green Bay Packers. First as a player, and later as a member of the personnel department, John has been a loyal member of the Packers family and the Green Bay community for more than half of his life. The Chiefs have hired a good man and John has earned this opportunity. We wish John and his family all the best.”
Dorsey is replacing Scott Pioli, who had the job the past four years. Under Pioli, the Chiefs went just 23-41, with a division title in 2010. Dorsey worked in Green Bay while Andy Reid was an assistant. Reid is now the Chiefs' head coach.
