    That guy was ND's QB coach for one season like 5 years ago. It's crazy how fast he's risen. I don't think he really even did anything at ND either.

    Why did he leave Sean McVay to be the OC under Matt Vrabel?

    He may be a great hire, but I can’t imagine watching the 2018 Titans offense and thinking “I really need to hire that guy to not only run my offense, but to run my entire football team.”

    Mike mccarthy was the OC of the 49ers when they had like one passing td for an entire season yet he won a super bowl. I’m glad he’s gone but the dude should have been useless if resume was everything.

    from The Athletic:

    Packers hiring Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur as head coach

    The search for a new head coach might have lingered for more than a month, but the Packers moved swiftly once they found a candidate they liked.

    President Mark Murphy has tabbed 39-year-old Matt LaFleur as the 15th coach in franchise history, a source confirmed to The Athletic Wisconsin, with both sides working to finalize a deal Monday afternoon. The news was first reported by ESPN.

    LaFleur spent the 2018 season as the offensive coordinator for the Titans and will arrive in Green Bay as the latest disciple of wunderkind Rams coach Sean McVay, the architect behind one of the league’s most innovative and high-powered systems.

    Prior to joining the Titans last season, LaFleur served as McVay’s offensive coordinator with the Rams in 2017. He worked previously as the quarterbacks coach for the Falcons (2015-’16) and Redskins (2010-13) alongside Kyle Shanahan, another revered football intellect who was the offensive coordinator in both places.

    LaFleur also spent one season as the quarterbacks coach at Notre Dame in 2014, where current Packers quarterback DeShone Kizer was one of his pupils.

    The decision to hire LaFleur reflects Murphy’s desire to bring an offensive coach to Green Bay following a season-long malaise in which the Packers finished 23rd in third-down conversion rate, 32nd in rushing attempts and 26th in completion percentage.

    Their star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, whom the franchise signed to a four-year, $134 million extension in August, endured one of the more tumultuous seasons of his career while expressing his displeasure with the game plans by former coach Mike McCarthy, who was fired with four weeks remaining in the regular season.

    While the Packers cast a wide net with their coaching search, the majority of their 11 candidates had offensive backgrounds in what amounted to an admission that ushering Rodgers back to his typical self was the primary goal.

    LaFleur, a Michigan native who interviewed Sunday, emerged as the favorite from a group that included Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Saints assistant head coach/tight ends coach Dan Campbell, Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr., former Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken, former Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, former Lions head coach Jim Caldwell and interim coach Joe Philbin.

    The defensive candidates included Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores and former Colts head coach Chuck Pagano.

    The Packers also requested permission to meet with Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak, but it’s unclear if an interview ever occurred.

    The NFL doesn't have the the benefit of 150 programs allowing AD's to just pluck any successful HC a step down on the food chain.

    I don't know why the dynamic of NFL HC hires is that surprising.

    I don't think anyone's saying they should have. It's more just a joke about the NFL's McVay fetish this hiring period.

    I like the way the Packers have gone about it the last couple times now. The best coordinators often times don't make good head coaches so you better find a guy that can lead and has a plan to fix what went wrong with the last guy.
