GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - Following a victory in Super Bowl XLV, the Green Bay Packers have signed General Manager Ted Thompson to a multi-year extension.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 58-year-old Thompson took the reigns as General Manager in 2005. Since that time, the Packers have made three playoff appearances in the past four seasons and has posted a 40-24 (.625) regular-season record since 2007.
“This is a great organization and I am very humbled and appreciative,” said Thompson. “Green Bay is a special place and I am honored to work with such a great group of people that have all contributed to our success.”
Of the Packers’ 53 active-roster players in Super Bowl XLV against Pittsburgh, 49 were acquired by Thompson, with 26 of them drafted during his tenure.
“We are thrilled to have Ted lead our football operations for the foreseeable future,” said team President and CEO Mark Murphy. “He has done an outstanding job of building this team. We worked on this and reached an agreement in December, and we are pleased to be able to make the announcement today.”
Green Bay became only the second No. 6 seed since 1990 to win the world championship.
