Packers to hire Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur as head coach

08 January 2019

According to reports, the Packers are hiring Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur as their next head coach.

Murphy and GM Brian Gutekunst interviewed Philbin for the top job but chose to go with LaFleur, the Tennessee Titans' young offensive coordinator.

The Titans fielded the NFL's 25th-ranked offense in 2018.

Prior to joining the Titans last season, LaFleur served as McVay's offensive coordinator with the Rams in 2017. Quarterback Marcus Mariota had his least-productive season in four years as a passer, averaging 180.6 yards per game through the air while throwing 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

Green Bay also interviewed New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who seemed like the leading candidate for the job.

A source said LaFleur would like to keep defensive coordinator Mike Pettine on board. Mike LaFleur previously worked under Shanahan in Cleveland and Atlanta.
