Packers landing Titans' Matt LaFleur as National Football League head-coaching domino falls

Packers landing Titans' Matt LaFleur as National Football League head-coaching domino falls

The Packers interviews LaFleur yesterday (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.

Citing a source, Rapoport says the Packers hired former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur.

According to the report, the team has notified other candidates that they are not being considered any more, indicating that the LaFleur hire is close to a done deal.

If LaFleur accepts the offer, he will become the 15th coach for the Green Bay Packers. He will replace Mike McCarthy, who coached the Packers for 13 seasons before being fired in early December.

He was also sacked seven times and the team as a whole lost three fumbles, showing the Ravens were playing poorly all around. But the debate between the two quarterbacks, which has ensued over the past eight games, is seemingly over.


LaFleur was a quarterbacks coach in Washington and Atlanta in the National Football League, as well as at Notre Dame and has a great reputation as a good coach of quarterbacks.

LaFleur's younger brother, Mike, serves as the 49ers' wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator.

He spent 2017 as the offensive coordinator with the Los Angeles Rams before taking the Titans job prior to this season.
