The rumors were true. The Chiefs officially announced on Saturday night that they have hired John Dorsey as the new general manager. Dorsey comes from the Green Bay Packers where he was the director of football operations.

It's official: the Kansas City Chiefs have a new GM. The team announced John Dorsey has agreed to become the team's next general manager.

Dorsey is coming from the Green Bay Packers where he was the director of football operations. He is the third Packers executive in as many years to get a GM job following Reggie McKenzie to Oakland and John Schneider to Seattle.

He had four tenures in Green Bay (via the Packers website): first as a player (1984-89); second as a college scout (1991-1997) and director of college scouting (1997-98); third as director of college scouting (2000-2012); and fourth as the current director - football operations (2012-present).

Dorsey is replacing GM Scott Pioli, who was fired on Friday, January 4.

Take a look at the draft picks Dorsey was involved in with the Packers.

Dorsey will be introduced by the Chiefs at a press conference on Monday at 2 p.m. (Arrowhead Time).
