The Green Bay Packers have hired their new quarterbacks coach, but are losing Eliot Wolf to the Cleveland Browns.

Another day, another coaching change for the Packers.

Head coach Mike McCarthy has found his replacement for Alex Van Pelt as the team’s quarterbacks coach.

According to Lance Allan of NBC Milwaukee, and later confirmed by Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Green Bay has hired Frank Cignetti.

But that’s not all.

Tom Silverstein also reported that the Packers have spoken with another Giants coach. This time defensive line coach Patrick Graham, who could take the linebackers coach job in Green Bay.

But as Green Bay’s coaching changes keep rolling in, the team has lost one of its top executives. Eliot Wolf, who was passed up in favor of Brian Gutekunst as general manager, follows Alonzo Highsmith from Green Bay to Cleveland, joining former Packers executive and now Browns GM John Dorsey.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the news on Wednesday morning.
