The man replacing him will come from a similar mold, as the Packers chose to give in-house candidate Brian Gutekunst as their new general manager.
The Packers found Ted Thompson's replacement without having to look outside the organization.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the deal is for five years for Gutekunst, who has been with the Packers for 19 years and was promoted to director of player personnel on March 21, 2016.
This comes after the 43-year-old Gutekunst interviewed for the Houston Texans' vacant GM job.
Gutekunst has been with the Packers since 1999 when he joined the team as a scout.

Lottery jackpots combine over $1 billion this weekend
Two Utahns won $1 million each playing Powerball at KJ's in 2017. "You would stop and pause and look", said Thompson. He said the last time the Powerball jackpot was hit was on October 25 in Louisiana. $400 million or something.
The San Francisco 49ers previously courted Gutekunst as a general manager candidate last offseason.
Gutekunst may not have been the Packers' first choice. In addition to stripping Thompson of his duties, the club is searching for new coordinators to replace Dom Capers and Edgar Bennett and several new assistants, including quarterbacks, defensive line and assistant linebackers.
That's good news for Mike McCarthy, who reportedly isn't in good graces with Ball and could've been out as the Packers' head coach if Ball was named GM.
