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

"We are very excited to welcome Matt as the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers", team president Mark Murphy said in a statement.

"My wife and I were driving to pick our kids up from school, I thought I was going to get in an accident", said LaFleur.

"The conversation went great", he continued. "It is more or less about looking at the ten other guys in the huddle and knowing you are going to get the job done". "I think he's equally excited".

"I guess we're still learning about Matt LaFleur", Freimund said. They required a coach with whom Rodgers will click, but person also needed to be an offensive-minded coach who understands Green Bay needs to be less dependent on the QB in order to win big again. LaFleur not only will coordinate the offense in Green Bay but also will call plays. A lot of the coaches and others that we talked to talked about his background, his experience. Realize the Tennessee Titans had a pretty bad offense in 2018 but the talent on their roster is nowhere close to that of the Packers.

He will be introduced at a news conference Wednesday in Green Bay. So I think we're in alignment there because, like I said before, this game is about winning.

Murphy and Gutekunst said the Titans' low-scoring offense didn't concern them in the hiring process because LaFleur's Tennessee offense suffered several key injuries to quarterback Marcus Mariota, and starting tight ends Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith.

"The foundation, it goes back to Mike Shanahan", LaFleur said.

And then came LaFleur, who had just finished his first year as the Titans' playcalling offensive coordinator after previously working under Sean McVay as the Rams' non-playcalling offensive coordinator and under Kyle Shanahan as the Falcons' quarterbacks coach. "It lessens the predictability of what you're trying to do, and it keeps a defense more off-balance. We're an organization where they've done a great job of picking the right coaches - and able to win and sustain success", said Gary Ellerson, former Packers player, host.

The Packers lost that game to the Atlanta Falcons, led by quarterback Matt Ryan, who won the league's MVP that season. Again, it comes down to developing that relationship, that trust, especially with the quarterback.

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