Packers hire Milt Hendrickson as director-football operations

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) -- The Green Bay Packers announced that they have named Milt Hendrickson as their director-football operations.

Hendrickson started his career as an intern with the Packers in 2004 and then moved on to work for the Baltimore Ravens from 2005-18.

During his time with the Ravens, Baltimore made the playoffs eight times and won one Super Bowl.

Hendrickson started as a player personnel assistant with the Ravens in 2005. Then, he primarily worked with the pro personnel staff in 2006-07. Eventually, he worked his way up to be the Midwest area scout from 2008-2012. That landed him the mid-regional scout position starting in 2013. Finally, he was promoted to the national scout after the 2016 NFL Draft.

Hendrickson is a close friend with general manager Brian Gutekunst. They met each other while with UW-La Crosse.

The director-football operations title is the same one Eliot Wolf held before leaving for Cleveland last year.
