GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The firing of Packers' defensive coordinator Dom Capers and staff wasn't the only bombshell to happen on Monday for Green Bay. NFL Networks' Ian Rapoport is citing sources that Ted Thompson is out as general manager.
Rapoport says the Packers will begin searching for a new GM, but Thompson is expected to remain with the organization in a different role.
Thompson has been Packers GM since 2005, becoming the tenth GM in Packers history when he replaced Mike Sherman.
Thompson replaced Sherman with Mike McCarthy in 2006. Together they built nine playoff teams -- eight with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, who was Thompson's first draft pick.
Under Thompson, the Packers won 135 games, lost 90, and had 1 tie. Green Bay also made the playoffs nine of the 13 seasons with him at the helm which includes a Super Bowl victory in 2010. His teams also played in four NFC Championship games, winning one.
Earlier on Monday the Packers also fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers, as well as defensive line coach Mike Trgovac and inside linebackers coach Scott McCurley.
