Seahawks general manager John Schneider considers the Packers’ general manager position to be a “dream job,” according to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
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.
Even if the Seahawks offer Schneider a crazy amount of money to stay in Seattle, he still has to be itching to get a job where he would have the final say. Right now head coach Pete Carroll has that power.
