(WLUK) -- Former Green Bay Packers general manager Ron Wolf, golf magnate Herbert Kohler Jr., and Milwaukee Bucks legend Marques Johnson will be inducted into the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame on Jan. 24, 2019, the hall announced Wednesday.

“It is such a wonderful honor to be inducted into the Wisconsin hall of fame and I owe so much to so many who made this possible. I thank you for this most prestigious award," Wolf said in a statement released by the hall.

Wolf was hired as the team's general manager in 1991, traded for Brett Favre, hired Mike Holmgren and signed Reggie White en route to a victory in Super Bowl XXXI. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2015.

Johnson played seven years for the Bucks, and was a four-time All Star selection.

Kohler's company operates multiple golf courses, including Whistling Straits, which has hosted the PGA Championship, and will host the Ryder Cup in 2020.
