Packers Reportedly Set to Hire Titans’ LeFleur as next Head Coach

A person familiar with the decision says Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur has accepted an offer by the Green Bay Packers to become the team’s next head coach. Multiple media sources, including ESPN and NFL Network reported late Monday that Green Bay had offered LaFleur the job. LaFleur spent this past regular season as offensive coordinator for the Titans, his first season calling plays in the NFL. He was offensive coordinator with the Los Angeles Rams in 2017, leading a group that paced the NFL in scoring was 10th in total offense. LaFleur replaces Mike McCarthy, who was fired during the season after a stunning home loss to Arizona. Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin went 2-2 to close out the season as the Packers failed to reach the playoffs for the second straight year. The 6-9-1 record was also the second straight under .500 for the storied franchise.
