After working his way through the ranks, Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schnedier has emerged as one of the premier GM’s in the NFL. However, while he seemingly loves heading up the Seahawks front office, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sential, Schneider’s dream job would be atop the Green Bay Packers front office.
John Schneider, 42, left the Packers in January 2010 to serve as general manager in Seattle. He grew up in De Pere, has deep ties and connections within the organization and city, and just helped the Seahawks win the Super Bowl.
Schneider hasn’t had the opportunity to wield the power that he would in Green Bay because Carroll has final say on everything in Seattle. It’s considered almost a foregone conclusion among his colleagues and friends that Schneider regards the Packers as his dream job.
Current Packers general manager Ted Thompson has done a fine job atop the Packers organization and isn’t out of contract until after the 2016 season, so it’s doubtful any move would be coming in the near future. That said, if the stars align, it’s within reason to believe Schneider could eventually make a return to the Packers franchise down the road.
