Packers introduce head coach Matt LaFleur

LaFleur said he left the Rams for the Titans to challenge himself as a coach.

The Packers formally introduced head coach Matt LaFleur Wednesday at Lambeau Field.

"I can't think of a better place to be a head coach in this league, and really all of sports," LaFleur said. "This a dream come true for me."

LaFleur said he's going to call the plays of offense, and he's looking forward to working with Aaron Rodgers once the two are able to get together.

"I cannot wait to get to work with him. I think he's equally as excited," LaFleur said when he addresed their recent conversation. "There's a lot of work to be done in front of us, but just looking forward to that opportunity."

LaFleur was the Rams offensive coordinator when they led the league in scoring in 2017. He said it would've been easy to stay with an explosive team that's a playoff contender, but he took the Titans offensive coordinator job to challenge himself.

"I took the risk because I knew that I needed to get out of my comfort zone and grow as a coach," LaFleur said. "The lessons I learned this year, I learned that football is not always easy. You better navigate through some adversity, and I was proud of that. I would not be the coach I am today without having those experiences of this past season."

LaFleur said he hasn't made any final decisions on his coaching staff.
