Packers' LaFleur excited to work with Rodgers

Here's how Matt La Fleur could look as the Packers head coach Here's how Matt La Fleur could look as the Packers head coach

"He has the unique combination of a quiet confidence but yet a humility", Murphy said. Before that, they had met with Chuck Pagano, Jim Caldwell and Packers interim coach Joe Philbin.

"The conversation went great", LaFleur said.

Here's a full look at LaFleur's comments from the presser.

He comes from the hot coaching tree right now in the league, having worked under Rams head coach Sean McVay and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. The bottom line for each is the Cardinals have major issues across the roster and just proved they are very willing to fire a coach after less than a calendar year and they have a GM under fire. His two sons sat quietly next to his wife. He spent the rest of his dad's interview wiping his eyes. "I would not be prepared to take this opportunity if it wasn't for my experience in Tennessee last season".

"It's been two long years here in Green Bay", Murphy said.

"I thought we were going to get in a vehicle accident", LaFleur said.

Rodgers has said in the past that he prefers his quarterback coaches to be guys who have actually played the position.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says the Packers "moved quickly on LaFleur" rather than take the time for a second round of interviews. You can have a huge impact on the game. Rodgers had the authority to change plays and often did so, to the frustration of McCarthy, who struggled at times to get into a rhythm. LaFleur is 39 years old, just four years older than Rodgers, so there are questions about how he'll be able to manage Rodgers and the type of relationship they will have.

"I was thankful for the opportunity to meet with Green Bay; it always gives you greater insight into another organization of how they do things".

LaFleur joined the Titans in 2018 with nine previous years of National Football League coaching experience. Ryan was named MVP that 2016 season.

I spoke to a Rams source and asked him which McVay assistant did more for the program and was more integral to their offense - LaFleur (who the Falcons opted not to retain as the quarterback coach just two years ago) or Rams current quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor.

LaFleur takes over for Mike McCarthy, who was sacked during the season following a stunning home loss to Arizona on December 2. When Nagy was hired last January, he was the same age as LeFleur and had only a few games of play-calling experience. Before that, he was offensive coordinator on McVay's staff in Los Angeles. The setup will provide some continuity, with the head coach calling plays and a defensive coordinator handling everything on defense. "We need to get better and we need to play harder, and we think he can do that for us".

Tennessee's offense ranked 25th this year but had injury issues with starting quarterback Marcus Mariota. "It would have been easy to stay in LA".

"Anytime you're the playcaller, you want that collaboration with your quarterback", LaFleur said after his news conference.

LaFleur was in the auto at the time.

In addition to getting his coaching staff set, he needs to get a connection established with Aaron Rodgers.
