Ron Wolf, former Green Bay Packers General Manager, will be the guest on the December "Conversations from St. Norbert College" television show hosted by Kevin Quinn. They will discuss Wolf's legacy in the NFL and what keeps his interest now that he's away from the pro football spotlight.
Wolf, who was the mastermind behind one of the greatest turnarounds in NFL history, brought the word "Title" back to "Title Town" winning the Super Bowl in the 1996-97 season. While General Manager for the Packers from 1991-2001, Wolf made significant, lasting decisions such as hiring Mile Holmgren as head coach and acquiring the likes of Brett Favre and Reggie White creating a winning culture that had not been seen since the Lombardi era.
Over his nine-year term as GM, the Packers compiled a 92--52 record, good for a .639 winning percentage, second in the NFL over that span. The Packers won Super Bowl XXXI against the New England Patriots, lost in Super Bowl XXXII to the Denver Broncos, and made the playoffs six straight times. Wolf officially retired as Packers GM in June 2001. He began is career in the NFL in 1963 with the Oakland and Los Angeles Raiders where he played a meaningful role with personnel operations in drafting notable players whom would play for the Super Bowl XI Championship team in 1976.
