Ed Policy appears to be a popular choice to succeed Murphy. He joined the Packers in 2012 as vice president and general counsel, and has been the chief operations officer and general counsel since 2018.

Policy, aged 53, was born and reared in the Midwest. After graduating from Notre Dame and Stanford, he worked as the Arena Football League’s deputy commissioner and president from 2001 to 2008. Following that, he served as the AFL’s acting commissioner from 2008 to 2009.

In 2009, he started working as an executive consultant with the National Football League. Green Bay hired him as vice president and general counsel in 2012, after only two seasons as an executive consultant. Policy was elevated to chief operating officer after holding the job till 2018.

A promotion to CEO would help to maintain continuity in the Packers’ structure. Murphy has done a lot for the Packers and the city of Green Bay. Policy has been in place for the most of it, and we hope to continue that work.
