"I think it's a great hire by the Green Bay Packers, Matt LaFleur. I think if you looking at someone who's going to be innovative and creative, well, they've most certainly hired him. I think he did a great job with Matt Ryan, and most recently the offensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans. I think you've got a guy who's well rounded, who has done a lot of things in the NFL," said Gary Ellerson, 105.7 FM The Fan.
Matt LaFleur would be the 16th head coach in Packers history, bringing Joe Philbin's short term to an end.
