Multiple reports indicate that Titans Offensive Coordinator Matt LaFleur will be the team’s next head coach.  Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk posted a confirmation.

The Packers have yet to confirm the move but reports are that they informed other candidates that they interviewed that they did not get the job.

LaFleur spent the last season with a Titans team that struggled until the end of the season.

He worked with the Rams offense in 2017 and was the Falcons Quarterbacks coach from 2015-2016.

This will be the 39-year-old’s first Head Coaching job after only serving as an assistant coach in college.

Sources also indicate that LaFleur will likely retain Packers Defensive Coordinator Mike Pettine.
