Tim Terry served as assistant director of pro personnel for the Packers since 2008.  He worked alongside Chiefs general manager John Dorsey from the 2004 to 2012 seasons while both worked in Green Bay.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport first reported the hiring of Terry.

The 42-year-old Terry played 43 games in parts of four seasons in the NFL as a linebacker, including a brief stint with the Chiefs in 1999. He then signed with the Canadian Football League’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats, which won the Grey Cup that season.

The hiring of Terry fills the vacancy left by the departure of former director of pro scouting Will Lewis. The team let go of Lewis along with director of football administration Trip MacCracken earlier this week.

The team has also yet to announce a possible replacement for former director of football operations Chris Ballard. Ballard left the organization earlier this year for the general manager role with Indianapolis.
