Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports Packers president Mark Murphy said in an interview Friday that he reached an agreement to extend the contract of general manager Ted Thompson.
Thompson had two years left on his contract after the 2010 season and this will be his second extension since becoming general manager in 2005. It’s not known how long the extension is for, but it’s likely it’s for three year more years so that Thompson is locked in for five years.
“I have complete confidence in Ted,” Murphy said in an interview Friday. “The other thing I would say that has ben really impressive is the working relationship he and Mike (McCarthy have. They really work well together.”
