Posted by Danny O'Neil

Seattle has announced John Schneider is the team's new general manager. He will be introduced on Wednesday at 10 a.m. during a news conference.

Here's the text of the team's release:

"Renton, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks named John Schneider general manager, the team announced today.

"Schneider, 38, joins the Seahawks after spending the previous eight seasons with the Green Bay Packers. He served as personnel analyst to the general manager before being named director- football operations in 2008.

"Schneider broke into the NFL in 1992 as an intern with Green Bay before being promoted to pro personnel assistant the following season. He played a vital role in signing several free agents who helped the Packers make back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, including a Super Bowl XXXI victory.

"Schneider spent three seasons as director of player personnel in Kansas City (1997-99), one in Seattle (2000), and a year with the Washington Redskins as vice president of player personnel (2001).

"A graduate of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn., Schneider played football for one season before a shoulder injury cut short his career. He and his wife, Traci, have two sons, Ben and Jack."
