Reports from Adam Schefter confirm that the Green Bay Packers have hire Titans’ Offensive Coordinator, Matt LaFleur, as their new Head Coach.
Packers offered the job to Titans' OC Matt LaFleur, per sources. Other HC candidates have been notified that they're out. So it looks like LaFleur in Green Bay.

LaFleur, 39, has experienced a quick ascent to becoming the 15th head coach in Green Bay’s history. He coached quarterbacks from 2010-2016 with the Redskins, Notre Dame, and the Falcons. He worked as an offensive coordinator from 2017-2018, with the Rams and the Titans. He runs an attack that builds off of outside zone concepts, with a passing attack that thrives off of play action. Needless to say, Aaron Rodgers is great off of play action. The zone blocking scheme also allows for plays such as wide receiver screens, which will allow for players like DaVante Adams to get out in space. Quick outs are also a staple in his offense. Also, be prepared to see a steady diet of RPOs as well.

This scheme will maximize the abilities of Aaron Rodgers, because the play calling is dynamic with the modified West Coast style of offense. It would appear that the Packers have found the right man for the job, and one should expect to hear about his staff hires shortly.
