Green Bay Packers: Matt LaFleur brings excitement and uncertainty

Share

The Green Bay Packers had no shortage of people vying for the head coach position, which was vacated after former head coach Mike McCarthy was sacked.

It came as quite a surprise owing to LaFleur's limited experience when it comes to play calling - just one season with the Titans - as many expected New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to get the nod to be the Packers' new head coach.

He will become the 15th head coach for Green Bay's storied franchise after being interviewed on Sunday.

Packers offered the job to Titans' OC Matt LaFleur, per sources.

He went on to coach several other high schools at both offensive coordinator and head coach, also making a stop in at the Arena Football League, where he also once spent time as a player. In addition to working with Mariota, Lafleur worked closely with Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, Rams quarterback Jared Goff and then-Washington quarterbacks Kirk Cousins and Robert Griffin III.

The Packers were the only team the 39-year-old LaFleur talked to.

For most of his career, LaFleur has served as an offensive coordinator.
