The Titans will have a new guy calling the shots on offense in 2019 - Matt LaFleur has been hired as head coach of the Green Bay Packers. "We're also excited about the person - he is bright with a great work ethic and a ideal fit for Green Bay and the organisation".
"Matt is smart, organized and has a great vision for the path forward for our team", said Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst in a news release. "He has a tremendous ability to build relationships on multiple levels, which is a very important aspect in leading a football team". NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero reports that the Packers and LaFleur have agreed to a four-year contract with a fifth-year option. LaFleur will be the team's youngest head coach since Curly Lambeau.
He has 10 years of National Football League experience, two of those as an offensive coordinator. He didn't call plays for the Rams - which is why he went to Tennessee.
The consensus amongst fans seems to be that Matt LaFleur is not a know-it-all type of coach who seems to have a good record (he did, after all, help Robert Griffin score his Rookie of the Year award, and was Matt Ryan's coach in 2016 when he won MVP), and will also get along well with Aaron Rodgers.
Skip Bayless, who always seems to be disappointed in somebody, is now disappointed that the Packers chose a "pushover" to be the next head coach of Wisconsin's team.
