The Packers interviewed 10 candidates for the position, including seven over the course of three days last weekend, a logistical nightmare that had the Packers president Mark Murphy, general manager Brian Gutekunst and executive vice president/director of football operations Russ Ball flying across the country.
"I think it would help him develop a little bit more, get him to the top of his game and maybe help the Packers succeed again", said Hunter.
"The conversation went great", he continued. I think that's the No. 1 concern.
LaFleur said his year in Tennessee was a necessary learning experience that got him out of his comfort zone and allowed him to grow as a coach, opening up the opportunity to be the coach and playcaller in Green Bay. "I know that he wants to add to his legacy, and the only way we're going to accomplish that is to win a world championship". "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". During that term, he combined with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan to develop one of the most explosive offenses in the league at the time.
"Man, these fans are insane", LaFleur said with a smile at Wednesday's news conference. So I think we're in alignment there because, like I said before, this game is about winning. Given LaFleur is only 39 and coming off a one-season stint coordinating a Titans offense that finished No. 27 in scoring, there are reasons to be skeptical about the level of success he will bring to Green Bay.
The former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator will fill the head coaching vacancy, the team announced on Tuesday. When you're making adjustments when the defense is out there.
The key to it all will be the relationship between the quarterback and playcaller.
Fitting LaFleur was with his family when he got the call. "The first thing Matt said was, 'I'm speechless.' I knew then that this was genuine excitement". His wife, BreAnne, was driving, and they were on their way to pick up their two young sons, Luke and Ty, from school.
With a sterling reputation and a great history with QBs, the Packers on first glance have knocked it out of the park with their fifteenth head coach.
