Packers hire LaFleur as head coach

The success of the young offensive gurus in head-coaching positions, like the Rams' Sean McVay, and the rival Bears' Matt Nagy, certainly paved the way for LaFleur, who has just 10 seasons of coaching experience and one season as a play-caller. He grew up in Mount Pleasant, Michigan and wound up heading to Western Michigan as a wide receiver.

LaFleur takes over for Mike McCarthy, who was sacked during the season following a stunning home loss to Arizona on December 2. LaFleur began his coaching career in 2003 as an offensive assistant at Saginaw Valley State, the school he played quarterback for and guided to three straight NCAA Division II playoff appearances.

"I'll never forget the first time I corrected him on the field", LaFleur recalled.

It's way too early to grade the hire, but what's your initial reaction on Matt LaFleur becoming the next head coach?

At the same time, LaFleur will have to coach the entire 53-man team, not just the quarterback. According to former players, including Dan Orlovsky, LaFleur will challenge the team and be constantly coaching up Aaron Rodgers.

Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons and Jared Goff of the Los Angeles Rams are just two examples of National Football League quarterbacks who found tremendous success when LaFleur was around. "We're also excited about the person-he is bright with a great work ethic and a flawless fit for Green Bay and the organization".

His first big break in the National Football League came when he took a job as Washington's QB coach in 2010. He made no commitments or announcements Wednesday, only saying he was planning to meet with some members of the 2018 staff, including defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, very soon. He has a great history with QBs including Matt Ryan's MVP season and Jared Goff.

Manchester United open talks with agent of Philippe Coutinho?
United face having to pay close to the £142m for Coutinho , which would be a record for the Premier League. Relations between PSG and Barca have been tense since Neymar's move to the Parc des Princes though.

Fitting LaFleur was with his family when he got the call. The Titans finished last season ranked 27th in scoring offense.

Introductory press conferences are always a celebration and this one signaled a stark contrast in the mood around Green Bay in recent months.

"It would have been easy to stay in LA., you look at the season they are having there", LaFleur says.

LaFleur was in the auto at the time.

LaFleur is regarded as one of the top young minds in the NFL.
