Matt La Fleur
They are in line with what the groupthink in the National Football League - always dominant - is espousing and, for as bold as they may appear to be on the surface, they are also entirely cookie cutter when viewed within the prism of what teams are prizing these days. Rodgers is a hard player to coach because he is extremely smart and independent. A person familiar with the decision says LaFleur has accepted Green Bay's offer to become the next head coach of the Packers.
While Rodgers did not take part in interviews with any of the 10 candidates, it's believed the only phone call he made to a candidate during the process was to LaFleur. "We're also excited about the person - he is bright with a great work ethic and a ideal fit for Green Bay and the organisation". He thinks they are both already on the same page. Ryan was named MVP that 2016 season. Prior to that LaFleur spent four seasons (2010-13) as quarterbacks coach for the Washington Redskins and one season coaching quarterbacks for Notre Dame (2014).
Cleveland Browns Have Found Their Next Head Coach
One name that could return is special teams coordinator Amos Jones, who spent time with Kitchens in Arizona on the Cardinals. As for Stefanski, as the tweet says he's on his way back to Cleveland to talk to the Browns again about the position.
And then came LaFleur, who had just finished his first year as the Titans' playcalling offensive coordinator after previously working under Sean McVay as the Rams' non-playcalling offensive coordinator and under Kyle Shanahan as the Falcons' quarterbacks coach. When Nagy was hired last January, he was the same age as LeFleur and had only a few games of play-calling experience.
After the initial three interviews, the Packers talked to Patriots offensive and defensive coordinators Josh McDaniels and Brian Flores, Saints offensive assistants Dan Campbell and Pete Carmichael, Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken and former Dolphins head coach Adam Gase. Before that, he was offensive coordinator on McVay's staff in Los Angeles. "I took the risk because I knew I needed to get out of my comfort zone and grow as a coach".
Under LaFleur, the Titans ranked 25th overall (312.4 yards per game) in offense in 2018 - 29th in passing (185.9 ypg), and 7th in rushing (126.4).
"Football isn't always easy, and you better be able to navigate through adversity", he explained in his introductory press conference on Wednesday at Lambeau Field. Because the two hires fit a particular archetype the league is favoring to a large degree, and while the names are surely not what many expected, the hiring of Kingsbury and LaFleur clearly fit the model that NFL's teams are bending over backwards to secure.
