Packers fans optimistic about new head coach

"We are very excited to welcome Matt as the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers", said Murphy. "It's truly an honor".

"Matt is smart, organized and has a great vision for the path forward for our team", said Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst in a news release.

Under the tutelage Randy Awrey, arguably the most successful head coach in program history, LaFleur helped the 2003 team break his own team and passing records.

"I think they wanted somebody that would hold players accountable", Murphy said. "But the experience in Tennesee made him a better coach". "I think he's equally excited". Is he going to jibe with Aaron Rodgers?

"We ended up interviewing 10 candidates", said Murphy.

The well-traveled coach, most recently the offensive coordinator with the Titans, inherits a future Hall of Fame QB in Aaron Rodgers (who at age 35 is just four years younger than him).

Murphy offered him the job.

In all, Green Bay's offense will become more creative and, yes, a little more complicated - both to Rodgers' benefit.

"I thought we were going to get in a auto accident", said LaFleur, who was introduced Wednesday afternoon as the 15th head coach in Packers franchise history.

With a new head coach, fans said they're eager to get back on the winning side of the game, hopeful Coach LaFleur will lead the Packers to victory. "There's one goal - always has been one goal - and that's to win world championships".

LaFleur says he will get started right away making staff decisions.

"I think there's excitement, but there's tempered excitement", Milwaukee's 105.7 The Fan host Chuck Freimund said on After Hours with Amy Lawrence. I think we have a great respect to one another.

And that's how LaFleur will approach things as Rodgers' new head coach. Tennessee didn't make the playoffs this past year, but LaFleur kept them in the hunt despite significant injuries, including to QB Marcus Mariota. Regardless of who the team brings on as offensive coordinator - or if they opt to carry on with a pass and run game coordinator as an alternative - that won't change.

LaFleur, who is from Mount Pleasant, Mich., made his start in the National Football League coaching ranks in 2008 with the Houston Texans, connecting with Kyle Shanahan, now the San Francisco 49ers head coach. LaFleur stepped in and said something about Ryan's balance. "It would have been easy to stay in L.A. You look at the roster, you look at the success they're having this year".

"I took the risk because I knew that I needed to get out of my comfort zone and grow as a coach". The lessons I learned this year, I learned football is not easy.
