On Thursday, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam told reporters that assistant GM Eliot Wolf will stay on his current role, despite the decision to part ways with GM John Dorsey earlier in the week.
Haslam did, however, make it clear that they will be hiring an external candidate that will work in concert with their next head coach.
“We will go outside the organization to find our next GM,” Haslam said, per Mary Kay Cabot.
Wolf, 37, is the son of former Packers GM Ron Wolf. He started off as a pro personnel assistant for the Packers in 2004 and worked his way up to director of football operations in 2016.
After the Packers hired Brian Gutekunst as their GM, Wolf departed for the assistant GM job under John Dorsey.
Wolf has previously come up as a GM candidate.
