Former Packer GM helping out Chargers
January 3, 2013 - Burt Angeli
Former Green Bay Packers general manager Ron Wolf regrets not having another “knock your socks off” moment in finding a coach.
"That happened to me a couple of times," Wolf said of selecting Mike Holmgren and Mike Sherman to lead the Packers "It should have happened to me one more time. I had the guy right there, and I was too stupid to realize what I was hearing."
The guy? That would be Andy Reid, a former Packer assistant who went on to a successful career with the Eagles before his dismissal this week.
Steve Mariucci, who was also on the Packer coaching staff with Reid, has been mentioned as a possibility for the Chargers head coaching position.
Wolf is advising the Chargers on their search for a new general manager, who will make the decision on a head coach.
“When I went to Green Bay in 1992, they had the poorest record in the National Football League,” Wolf said in the San Diego Union-Tribune. “I think if you’ll check it out now from 1992 right to this day, the team with the best record in the NFL is the Green Bay Packers.”
