The Packers will begin a search for a new general manager as Thompson shifts to a new role within the organization.

The Packers finished just 7-9, the worst mark for the franchise since Aaron Rodgers' first year as starter in 2008. The All-Pro quarterback missed most of the season with a broken collarbone.

The Packers also fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers, defensive line coach Mike Trgovac and inside linebackers coach Scott McCurley on Monday.
