Aaron Rodgers Called Matt LaFleur Before Packers' Made Offer

Aaron Rodgers Called Matt LaFleur Before Packers' Made Offer

"To follow in the footsteps of Vince Lombardi, Mike Holmgren, Mike McCarthy, it's truly an honor", LaFleur said. When you're dealing with a quarterback, it is a partnership.

"Man, these fans are insane", LaFleur said with a smile at Wednesday's news conference.

"I think we've got the flawless candidate to lead us to where we want to go", Gutekunst said.

That's why he pursued another offensive coordinator job - this one in Tennesee that would offer him full play-calling duties.

As McVay's right-hand man with the high-flying Rams offense, LaFleur left past year to join Mike Vrabel's new coaching staff with the Titans to become a full-time play-caller.

Building a relationship with Rodgers and the entire roster is as necessary as it is daunting for a first-time head coach, but LaFleur already has shown how much he's willing to push any perceived boundaries.

It's also an offense Rodgers spoke admiringly of during the season.

He then became the Los Angeles Rams' offensive coordinator in 2017 and continued to build upon his resume, joining forces with head coach Sean McVay to incorporate a powerful offense that remains among the league's best this year.

LaFleur will now get to work putting together his coaching staff as the busy offseason continues.

"He played with a really depleted team in Tennessee previous year, and had them a game away from the playoffs".

The Packers interviewed LaFleur 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.

"He has the unique combination of a quiet confidence but yet a humility", Murphy said. Quite honestly, if he had stayed in L.A. with the kind of year they had this year, he'd be the hot candidate.

Even though the season didn't end the way LaFleur and the Titans had hoped for it to, the former OC remains grateful for the experience. He'd be flying all over the country talking to everybody.

With a new head coach, fans said they're eager to get back on the winning side of the game, hopeful Coach LaFleur will lead the Packers to victory. That's when Gutekunst told the franchise quarterback to go ahead and reach out to LaFleur. That's why it's so important to me to hire quality people around me. "We're excited to get started". "It lessens the predictability of what you're trying to do, and it keeps a defense more off-balance. It is more or less about looking at the ten other guys in the huddle and knowing you are going to get the job done". "We were going to stop in New Orleans, Nashville, Indianapolis".
