Reports: Packers make changes to front office, coaching staff following season ending loss

Posted: Updated:

The Green Bay Packers will have a new general manager and defensive coordinator next season following their (7-9) season, as reported Monday night.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Ted Thompson is out as GM, per his sources. However, Thompson will begin a different role within the organization. The team has begun looking for a new general manager. Thompson was the tenth GM in Packers' history and took over the job in 2005 when he replaced Mike Sherman.

Thompson is known for drafting Aaron Rodgers, his very first draft pick at the helm. With him in charge, the Packers won 135 games, lost 90 and tied one. 

His time as general manager saw the Packers make nine playoff appearances and a Superbowl title in 2010.

Earlier in the day, Green Bay fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers according to reports. Capers joined the team in 2009.

The Packers finished the season (7-9) overall after Sunday's 35-11 loss to the Detroit Lions in the regular season finale.
