Well it’s been confirmed by all the networks and publication around Wisconsin. Green Bay has now picked a new head coach to replace the beloved Mike Mccarthy. The only question is can he nurture this team to greatness?

Matt LaFleur, former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator has been named head coach of the Green Bay Packers. Hired only eight days after the conclusion of the 2018 regular season. At the age of 39 LaFleur played college football at Saginaw Valley State. This is where he started coaching in 2003 for 5 years. After this LaFleur became offensive quality control coach for the Texans. 

Two years later LaFleur joined the Redskins and four seasons after that served as the Quarterback coach for the Atlanta Falcons. He worked directly with Kyle Shanahan. LaFleur then become offensive coordinator with the Rams for one year, before taking that same job in Tennessee. He is experienced and talented but even with all those years Aaron Rodgers will be the most talented Quarterback that he has ever worked with to date, and with that his biggest challenge moving forward. LaFleur has worked with some of the greats like Matt Schaub, Donovan McNabb, Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins, Matt Ryan, Jared Goff, and Marcus Mariota.

Aaron Rodgers is only four years younger than LaFleur, and is entering the stretch run of his career, LaFleur will be charged with trying to get the most out of a guy who, as it relates to the pursuit of championships, has underachieved in recent years. Is he up to the challenge and is he what Green Bay needs for massive improvement?
