President/CEO Mark Murphy and GM Brian Gutekunst introduce Matt LaFleur as the 15th head coach in Green Bay Packers history.
“He has the unique combination of a quiet confidence but yet a humility,” Murphy said. “I see him having the ability and experience to really make a difference.
“I think we’ve found a gem in Matt and we’re really excited about the future under his leadership.”
“For me, I try to make this as simple as possible – we wanted someone who could win, and that’s what we found in Matt,” Gutekunst said.
“We’re ready to get after it and I think we have the perfect candidate to lead us to where we want to go. There’s one goal here, it’s always been one goal, to win world championships, and we’re excited to get started.”
“I needed to challenge myself,” LaFleur said. “It would have been easy to stay in LA. You look at the roster, you look at the success they’re having this year.
“I took the risk because I knew I had to get out of my comfort zone and grow as a coach. The lessons I learned this year, I learned football is not easy. You’d better navigate through some adversity, and I was proud of that.”
