GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) -- A person familiar with the decision says Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur has accepted Green Bay's offer to become the next head coach of the Packers.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Monday because neither the Packers nor the Titans had announced the decision.
According to reports, they've begun notifying other head coaching candidates that they're no longer being considered.
The 39 year old just completed his first season as offensive coordinator under Titans first year head coach Mike Vrabel.
He worked with Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan during his MVP year, and was with Sean McVay in 2017 when Rams quarterback Jared Goff had his breakout year.
It is being reported by multiple outlets LaFleur's only head coaching interview was with Green Bay.
LaFleur will become the 15th head coach in Packers' history.
The team is reportedly working on finalizing a deal that is expected to help keep Mike Pettine and the defensive staff in tact.
Packers offered the job to Titans' OC Matt LaFleur, per sources. Other HC candidates have been notified that they're out. So it looks like LaFleur in Green Bay.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 7, 2019
The #Packers hire of #Titans OC Matt LaFleur is the first off the board, and I’m told #Bucs OC Todd Monken was the other really strong candidate here. Rather than do second rounds, they moved quickly on LaFleur— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 7, 2019
Been told that #Rams coach Sean McVay and soon-to-be #Packers coach Matt LaFleur are close friends and it's likely McVay lobbied for him. Murphy was clearly looking for a guy with an offensive mind. Allows him to keep DC Mike Pettine and the entire staff .— Tom Silverstein (@TomSilverstein) January 7, 2019
