The 39-year-old has worked with the likes of Matt Ryan and Jared Goff at the NFL level, including leading Ryan to the MVP Award in the 2016 season. LaFleur was his quarterbacks coach that season, and appeared in the Super Bowl after the Falcons beat the Packers in the NFC Championship Game, 44-21. After just one season under Sean McVay with the Rams, LaFleur left for the Titans' gig, where head coach Mike Vrabel allowed him to make play calls during the game.
The Titans did finish at just 25th in total yards and 29th in passing yards per game this past season, but that was due to injuries to starting quarterback Marcus Mariota, which costed them a playoff spot in Week 17 against the Indianapolis Colts. The first-time head coach will be replacing McCarthy, who went 135-85-2 in nearly 13 seasons with the Packers, including a Super Bowl Championship win. Although, that is not the success Green Bay saw this past season, as they will be coming off a dismal 6-9-1 record in LaFleur's first season.
