Packers hire alumnus Fisher as player/alumni senior coordinator

Posted Jul 11, 2013

The Green Bay Packers have hired Tony Fisher as the community outreach department’s player/alumni senior coordinator. Fisher, who played running back for the Packers from 2002-2005, was an avid community “go-to” player during his time on the team and helped support more than 60 appearances for the Packers’ community outreach department.

Fisher, who reports to Cathy Dworak, the Packers’ community outreach and player/alumni relations manager, will work to build relationships with and educate current players and alumni on the importance of community appearances. Fisher will also assist with alumni on gameday, and will help coordinate the NFL’s Hometown Huddle project, Edgar Bennett Celebrity Bowl-a-thon, Packers Tailgate Tour, Alumni Weekend and the Packers alumni news publication.

Signed as a rookie free agent running back from Notre Dame in 2002, Fisher appeared in 60 career games with the Packers. He rushed for 880 yards and four TDs on 235 carries, and registered 1,059 receiving yards and 5 TDs on 125 receptions.

After his playing career, he spent a number of years coaching football, first as the Euclid (Cleveland) High School running backs coach and later as the head of the Greater Cleveland Muny Football League’s Tony Fisher Eagles. He also worked in real estate investing.
