LaFleur to be the youngest Packers coach since Curly Lambeau

  • The Packers Have Reportedly Made A Head Coaching Decision

Packers offered the job to Titans' OC Matt LaFleur, per sources. He will replace Mike McCarthy, who coached the Packers for 13 seasons before being fired in early December. He then moved on to the Tennessee Titans, where he would have the ability to call plays for the team.

He was offensive coordinator with the Los Angeles Rams in 2017, leading a group that paced the National Football League in scoring was 10th in total offense.

It will be interesting to see if LaFleur can get Green Bay back to playoff contention and help save the rest of Aaron Rodgers' prime. Demovsky reports that LaFleur will travel to Green Bay on Tuesday and be formally introduced Wednesday at Lambeau Field.

LaFleur did an outstanding job as the quarterback coach for Matt Ryan during his MVP season in 2016 and also helped Goff to a breakout year in 2017.

Eagles beat Bears 16-15
The meeting was captured by NBC cameras and looked all too familiar to the Super Bowl scene when Foles asked for Philly Special. As for their losses, Chicago was defeated only four times in the regular season, losing by an average of just 3.5 points.

Critics Say National Parks Facing Political Pressure To Keep Open During Shutdown
The park has also had to close down some roads due to snowfall because it does not have the staff to sand or plow them. The president's closed door meeting with congressional leaders produced no results, so the stalemate will continue.

Before the Titans, LaFleur was the Rams' offensive coordinator under Sean McVay, though he didn't call the plays.

O'Hara began his coaching career at the high school level, including the offensive coordinator position at Olympia High School in Orlando while former Titan Chris Johnson was on roster as one of the team's rushers.

But if he isn't, and the Packers continue to languish, you'd have a hard time convincing me that Murphy should be around to make the next coaching hire.
