Packers confirm hiring of Matt LaFleur as coach

Packers Hire Titans OC Matt LaFleur as Head Coach

Packers hire LaFleur as head coach

No matter how you slice up LaFleur's background, all signs point to him having a handsome relationship with Rodgers.

Tennessee's offense ranked 25th this year but had injury issues with starting quarterback Marcus Mariota.

The Green Bay Packers have found their next head coach, hiring Matt LaFleur.

"To follow in the footsteps of Vince Lombardi, Mike Holmgren, Mike McCarthy, it's truly an honor", LaFleur said.

LaFleur's first day on the job in Green Bay was an emotional one.

Marko Arnautovic Wants To Leave West Ham For China
It is understood West Ham will not consider selling him this month because of the difficulties they may face in replacing him. He took every award at the club; best player, signing of the season and the players' award.

"He didn't like it too much", LaFleur continued.

LaFleur was the 10th and final candidate, and after the interview, Murphy, Gutekunst and Ball looked at each other said, "That was good wasn't it?" He was incredible to work with. The lessons I learned this year, I learned football is not easy.

More importantly, LaFleur can parlay the Rodgers connection into enough wins for the Packers to return to the playoffs as early as 2019.

See video as it happened of the news conference above. The part of Rodgers that loves a challenge should enjoy that. When Nagy was hired last January, he was the same age as LeFleur and had only a few games of play-calling experience.

The Packers interviewed LaFleur Sunday after five days of coaching interviews that reportedly included interim Packers coach Joe Philbin, the New England Patriots' offensive and defensive coordinators, and the New Orleans Saints assistant head coach and their offensive coordinator. Given LaFleur is only 39 and coming off a one-season stint coordinating a Titans offense that finished No. 27 in scoring, there are reasons to be skeptical about the level of success he will bring to Green Bay.

"It was a risk for him to leave L.A. and go to Tennessee", Murphy said.

Fitting LaFleur was with his family when he got the call.

"It would have been easy to stay in LA., you look at the season they are having there", LaFleur says. He'd be flying all over the country talking to everybody.

"We are ready to get back to winning", Murphy said before introducing LaFleur. That's when Gutekunst told the franchise quarterback to go ahead and reach out to LaFleur. He was key in developing a young Kirk Cousins with the Shanahans in Washington, then a young Jared Goff with Sean McVay in Los Angeles.

"It's important you hire the best candidate not the best interviewer". "We're excited to get started". When you're making adjustments when the defense is out there. "A lot better situation than the Packers were in, so in that sense, you got to be optimistic that he's going to be able to get it done for them", said Schmid. "We were going to stop in New Orleans, Nashville, Indianapolis".
