Green Bay Packers hire Matt LaFleur as new head coach

The Green Bay Packers hire Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur their new head coach, wrapping up a round of 10 interviews with a coaching hire.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network says that the only other strong candidate for the position was Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken.

With the hire comes also the news that defensive coordinator Mike Pettine and his staff will be retained in Green Bay. Pettine worked with a banged-up defense and kept them serviceable despite missing several players for chunks of the year.
