Packers to Hire Matt LaFleur as Head Coach

The Green Bay Packers have made the first hire in the 2019 hiring cycle. 

Breaking... 

According to ESPN's Rob Demovsky and Adam Schefter, the Packers are about to hire Titan's offensive Coordinator Matt LaFleur as it's next head coach. LaFleur comes from the Mike Shanahan coaching tree, which produced current hotshot head coaches like the Rams' Sean McVay and the 49ers' Kyle Shanahan. 

LaFleur, 39, was an offensive assistant with Houston; quarterbacks coach with Washington and Atlanta; offensive coordinator with the Rams and Titans, and now HEAD C0ACH OF YOUR GREEN BAY PACKERS!!!

...

According to Rob Demovsky, the Packers are also expected to retain Defensive Coordinator Mike Pettine and his staff.

 

Others weighing in on the hire:

I have zero preconceived notions on this purported hire.

Coaching is one of those things where it's all about the right place at the right time. I'll eagerly await the assembling of his staff, OTAs and Training Camp to see what kind of ship he'll run. No question there will be some bumps along the way, it's Rodgers' first ever change of offense.

I'm optimistic for the new coaching staff until proven otherwise. The only thing I wish for is he puts Rodgers in check and gets him back to a conscientious, methodical, and deliberate style of play within the structure of the offense. Take charge, coach.

" zero preconceived notions"

I am very interested in the fact the Henry won AFC player of the month for Dec. To me that is a big deal. This team BADLY needs balance on offense.

Also, Marriota and Gabbert had completion percentages in the upper 60s. Those guys are not on anyone's list of great QBs. If he can make those dudes efficient, I think he can put together some nice stuff for Rodgers.

Additionally, listing to him talk, he's articulate and honest. Listen to this.

Google titansonline.com matt-lafleur-you-have-to-trust-the-process

So much more refreshing than MM pad level BS. Rodgers is going to resonate with Matt LaFleur. How can we blame Rodgers for tuning out MM. I tuned him out 3 years ago and I only hear him on video 10 minutes a week.

The thing is.. that "pad level bs" is about the most straight forward, honest football talk you can get from a coach. It's not sexy.. but level, leverage, and technique are what make good football players.

It's a copycat league and the Packers hopped right on the bandwagon. Good for them--they didn't dally around and made what they thought was the best decision. Now they can get a head start on turning this into a competitive team once again. I'll be interested to see how this hiring affects free agent and draft priorities.

Yes, it matters. The OC will be contributing major parts.of the game plan, running a big part of the installations and managing the day to day for the position coaches. It's an big job. Also if Philbin is still Assistant HC he'll likely be helping with game time management.

Priority #1 needs to be getting Rodgers right again. I know some people here think that means coddling him and trying to keep him happy and comfortable, but He needs nudged out of his comfort zone, and reminded that he's a player,who answers to coaches.

Originally Shannahan started out in Denver under Dan Reeves before being hired in Oakland by Al Davis. After being fired and feuding with Davis, he then spent 4 years coordinating offenses for George Siefert in San Fran . This is where he picked up the west coast system and took it back to Denver in 95 as HC after winning a SB in 94 using it with San Fran as their OC. I'm talking about Mike Shannahan who then passed his knowledge to his son Kyle. LaFleur has most recently worked under McVay, Vrabel, Shannahan, and Jay Gruden another west coast guy and Jon Gruden's brother. McVay and Kyle Shannahan have both worked under Jay Gruden recently as well. The west coast offense runs deep with LaFleur.

I like the pedigree with player development. I have no real feel for his play calling or schematic abilities.

If it is true that he may keep Philbin, the question becomes, for me, what did Philbin bring to the table this year and why was it seemingly so underwhelming? Was he constrained by what the MM system had become, by Rodgers or what? Perhaps Philbin needs a viable direction to unlock his value? On the other hand, perhaps Philbin will be an obstacle to significant change and is more of a security blanket for some one. Not at all sure about his value or otherwise moving forward.

Pettine’s retention is the blessing. One season with an inexperienced O decimated by injuries and with glaring gaps and turnover at some positions is not enough to form a rational view. I respect what he did with, by the end, virtually no one. What can he do with a rush etc and some help will take another season to determine and, in doing so, allow the rookies some continuity in their development rather than a significant reset.

Overall, this is a risk. Betting on unproven potential beyond seeming player development. The alternative was a more proven candidate, none of whom excited me.

McD is someone I am just not sure would work in GB. I remember what he did in Denver when given the reins. He may need a BB to constrain his excesses. At the very least, I have doubts over his transition to HC that elevate his risk factor too.

So here we go. Fingers crossed this is a step in the right direction: only time will tell.

To take the negative approach, one could look at this as being Murphy and co taking the easy option. Hire a QB guru and keep the popular Philbin and the leadership’s recently hired incumbent DC even if it means going with a candidate whose play calling and offensive design are largely unproven.

I don’t know if the above is the case. I am not an expert on LaFleur by any means. It just seems that no one has pointed out what seems to be an equally plausible explanation as the general assumption shaping this thread, especially if, like me, one has little faith in Murphy,

I hope LaFleur's hire wasn't based on our front office wanting to retain Pettine. The coaching staff should be the new coach's call. Pettine made chicken soup outta chicken shit this season, but I think his retention shouldn't be a requirement for choosing a HC.

Dash I'm happy as hell that it looks like Pettine will be back and I thought you would be too, even if it wasn't a pairing with Rex. LaFleur has no reason to keep Zook around as special teams was just awful. The defense improve substantially in several areas under Pettine and should continue to get even better.

Yeah, this really caught me by surprise, no doubt. I still think Philbin had a much better resume, but then again, I thought we should have drafted Lamar Jackson last year and kept Nelson and unloaded Cobb.

So Gutekunst and I don't always think alike.

Best of luck to LaFleur. People aren't going to be happy if we miss the playoffs a 3rd straight year, and Gutekunst's stewardship could be a short one if this doesn't work out fairly quickly.

Going all the way back to Dash’s remark about keeping Pettine’s staff meaning Zook would be retained:

As far as I understand it, DCs generally are not responsible for the ST coordinator and ST play. I certainly did not understand Pettine to be in GB.

As such, I don’t see any remark that would suggest that Zook or his staff are part of the future plans. Personally, I am thankful for that. We need a complete clear out in that area in my view.

I wonder what Packer fans were saying when Lombardi was hired?
It's tough to assess these assistants as potential head coaches, I hope the front office received a lot of sincere and insightful references from players and coaches.
That LaFleur was hired so quickly may be a good sign that his overall package of attributes was impressive, including his personal presence and his plans for Packers success.
Perhaps he could have had more experience as an offensive coordinator, but then again, maybe the time to hire him was now.
For whatever reasons, at least for now, I'm excited about LaFleur and the future of the Packers.
Perhaps some offensive innovation is on the way; more of a run game; a leader who is firmly in charge but can also relate to the players with a measure of flexibility; someone not threatened by Pettine remaining, or too egotistical about picking his own defensive coordinator...
We'll see, but I'm hopeful.

Whoever the Packers appointed was going to have his detractors but I think its a pretty good hire. Won't claim to be an expert on him by any means but he worked with Matt Ryan and Jared Goff during good years for them.

I wasn't really for or against any of the candidates, though had obvious reservations about McDaniels given what went on with the Colts. Keeping Pettine is a good move and with a solid draft and some moves in free agency, I'm optimistic.

One thing I will say, the Packers Front Office haven't gone safe or conservative with this choice. They've picked a promising offensive-minded coach and that to me is intriguing.

I think your comment, Altered Idol, reflects a lot of what I'm thinking and feeling. Never heard of LaFleur before, but he seems like one of the up-and-comers with good results in prior positions as an assistant.
It's interesting that he has seemingly worked well with Ryan and Goff in avant-garde passing offenses, yet also likes the run. Presumably, he'll call more passes with the Packers than with the Titans, but it seems we would do well with more emphasis on the run game.
I'm curious about Trent Dilfer's comment that seems to say LaFleur is much the way McCarthy used to be. I wonder what that means?

I think McD has as many questions about his personality and temperament as LaFleur and others have about their overall head coaching capabilities. I do not see McD as a sure bet to make the next step again, particularly without a dominant leader (elsewhere owner).

There were questions about all the candidates except those who were underwhelming retreads in my view. No idea if we made the right choice or an internally easy one. But I have no reason to point to to say we did not.

Here is to hoping for new ideas and galvanizing leadership! Go LaFleur: Go Pack Go!

I am not so sure about a scat back. I am just hopeful that we use Williams and Jones effectively. Williams particularly is a good receiving back in my view.

We do need a kick returner. If we can find a good one who can stay healthy I would take him whether he plays RB, CB, WR or whatever. Given that I have a low expectation of the chance of that player becoming a starter outside special teams, what his notional position is seems unimportant in comparison to talent and durability.

The offense in NE has been about the same since Belicheck took over. Remember how everyone thought Charlie Weis was the greatest offensive mind ever because of NE's offensive success? Notice how the NE offense didn't miss a beat when McDaniels went to Denver...and how O'Brien led them to team records in offense while McDaniels was gone. He's not the reason that offense is so potent. If he leaves this year or somewhere down the road, that offense will be just fine without him.

Nick, I think it was the late John Kirk who said to watch for the word "fit". I think he was probably dead on with this. I agree McDaniels clearly had the best results out of them all but the Packers were looking for the perfect clean cut young guy fit for Green Bay. LaFleur was the guy it seems. McDaniels was not the image and fit GB top brass was looking for. He's perceived as a rebel with a bad "tone" that can be a troublemakers plus he wears a visor meaning he's trying to hide something. I only wish I could hear what Kirk's final take on this was. Sad he left before the big one. Why did he leave? WTF happened or who pissed him off?

He'll have at least one assistant (Pettine) with experience as a HC to lean on.

Very glad it wasn't McDaniels. Best of luck to Matt LaFleur! Go Pack Go

Good to see them hire a young up-and-coming star in the coaching ranks instead of some old retread.

Let's start getting this team turned around!!!

LaFleur can do it... I'd bet my favorite piece of Packer-warez on it!

Honestly, I doubt that anyone on this board is at all qualified to judge the various candidates who have not yet been NFL head coaches. I certainly am not.

We'll see.

I coach Jr. Varsity secondary... I'm no "expert", but I know a good offensive coach when I see one - and LaFleur is definitely that!

I was worried about that too. Until I looked into it more. His group made a lot of progress over the season, in spite of some serious talent and injury issues.

If there is anyone qualified I am pretty sure it's John Kirk. I guess we have to wait and see what he has to say.

Dash, a lot of people are saying Jersey Al has purchased additional servers to handle Kirk's response to this hire, and the ensuing surge in traffic to CHTV.

It is rather exciting isn't it Leotis? Everyone has responded to this hiring for the most part except for John Kirk. It's almost as exciting as waiting for the speech on the wall tomorrow night. I hope Kirk goes before the President.

Now that the new coach is hired I hope he can bring success back to Green Bay. Matt LaFleur is a solid choice as were others that interviewed for the HC job. I was a little surprised at the choice, but not disappointed. Will be interesting to see the other changes, if any, at the coaching positions. He must have made a lasting impression to be hired without offering any second interviews to the other candidates. I wish him nothing but the best as the new coach of the Green Bay Packers.

The last stat showcasing titans vs packers run plays says a lot. Curious who the O staff will be. Looks to be a solid selection though.
