Player personnel, draft position, desire to build one's own team/system. Whoever ends up being the coach will have a team with legitimate underperforming talent at several important positions and arguably pro-bowl talent on both lines, halfback, safety, and in special teams. He'll also have a top-10 pick to spend where he likes. It's a chicken-and-egg thing where if a coach establishes a winning environment he's hailed as a savior/architect and the position becomes enviable. Take away Green Bay's mystique and it's on par with Buffalo.
