The Green Bay Packers aren't done bringing in young and up and coming coaches.

"We are very excited to welcome Matt as the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers", said Murphy. And if there's one thing I can say in regards to a guy like Aaron, if you give Aaron time and you are unpredictable, he's going to excel, because we all know the talent he has.

"I couldn't think of a greater place to be a head coach in all of sports".

"If he stayed in L.A., he'd be the hot candidate right now", Murphy said at Wednesday's introductory press conference for LaFleur.

"We have found a gem in Matt and I'm really excited about the future and his leadership", said Murphy. 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. "We're also excited about the person - he is bright with a great work ethic and a flawless fit for Green Bay and the organisation". I think we have a great respect to one another. During that term, he combined with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan to develop one of the most explosive offenses in the league at the time.

Given all that has been made about Rodgers and how hard he can be to coach, it's no wonder that Wednesday's introductory press conference with LaFleur was dominated by questions about how he will make it work with Rodgers. "So in my mind, that was something that as we went through the process, was kind of in the back of my mind, is there something we can do that can kind of shake people up so we don't have the complacency".

Rodgers has said in the past that he prefers his quarterback coaches to be guys who have actually played the position. The Titans finished last season ranked 27th in scoring offense.

In Tennessee, LaFleur was given a backfield committee of Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry, and as the play-caller, LaFleur wisely realized in the second half of the season that Henry's powerful running style meshed better with the team's blocking abilities. When you're making adjustments when the defense is out there.

The Packers lost that game to the Atlanta Falcons, led by quarterback Matt Ryan, who won the league's MVP that season.

LaFleur and his wife, BreAnne, have two sons, Luke and Ty.

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

They called LaFleur the day after the interview to offer him the job.
