KANSAS CITY, Mo.-- The Kansas City Chiefs have introduced John Dorsey as the team's new General Manager.

Dorsey leaves Green Bay where he served as Director of Football Operations.

In a news conference Monday afternoon, Dorsey called his new position with the Chiefs as his 'dream Job.' Dorsey told the Kansas City media, "Ever since I met my wife in 1993, I've always wanted to and I've always dreamed of being the GM of the Chiefs one day."

Dorsey and newly hired coach Andy Reid will be tasked with rebuilding the Chiefs which finished 2-14. The team will have the first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Packers GM Ted Thompson issued a statement of congratulations upon hearing the news.

“I would like to thank John Dorsey for his 27 years of service to the Green Bay Packers. First as a player, and later as a member of the personnel department, John has been a loyal member of the Packers family and the Green Bay community for more than half of his life. The Chiefs have hired a good man and John has earned this opportunity. We wish John and his family all the best.”
