Harlan: No Timetable On Finding New Leader For Organization

The Green Bay Packers' chairman was scheduled to give up the reins at the end of May to John Jones. But that was before Jones took a sudden leave of absence and then tendered his resignation last week as team president, citing aftereffects of the heart surgery he had a year ago.

The 70-year-old Harlan agreed to stay on the job as the team looks for a successor.

With the annual shareholders meeting coming up Wednesday, Harlan says he'll keep leading the organization as long as it takes, just as he has for the past 18 years.

He says it would be wrong to put a timetable on the search ... and the key is to get the right person, no matter how long it takes.

Harlan says the team has received between 12 and 15 applications, and those names have gone to the recently formed search committee.

The team expects more than 17-thousand shareholders and guests to attend the meeting at Lambeau Field.
