Wolf Joins Navy Broadcast Team

Former Packers general manager Ron Wolf has joined the Navy Football Radio Network for two games this fall. Wolf will handle the color commentary for the Toledo and Notre Dame games, filling in for John Feinstein, who had previous commitments.

"I am honored to be a part of such a storied tradition as Naval Academy Football," said Wolf. "I have been a long-time fan of Service Academy football and I am a great admirer of the student-athletes at the academies. This is a wonderful opportunity and I am looking forward to it."

Wolf retired as general manager of the Packers after last season. He built the Packers into perennial NFL contenders during his nine-year tenure, punctuated by their Super Bowl XXXI victory.

Wolf, 62, a New Freedom, Pa., native, was enshrined in the Packer Hall of Fame in July of 2000. He has agreed to serve as a consultant for the Packers for the next three years.

A major ingredient in the Packers' revival was Wolf's superior talent for selecting players in the annual NFL draft. A contribution underscored by the fact that 57.8 percent of those he has drafted during his tenure were still playing in the league at the end of the 2000 regular season. The average career length for an NFL player is closer to four years.
