Green Bay Packers roundtable: Building relationships with Aaron Rodgers

Mike Pettine agrees to stay on as Packers defensive coordinator

Mike Pettine agrees to stay on as Packers defensive coordinator

The 39-year-old LaFleur spent this season as offensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans, his first calling plays in the NFL. He transferred there after playing one season of receiver at Western Michigan, a decision that may have shaped his coaching destiny. He became an offensive assistant coach, and to no surprise, the Cardinals offense exploded.

"I think there's excitement, but there's tempered excitement", Milwaukee's 105.7 The Fan host Chuck Freimund said on After Hours with Amy Lawrence.

"I'll tell you what, I can not wait to get to work with him", LaFleur said of Rodgers.

Keeping Pettine on the Packers' staff could ease LaFleur's transition as a first-year coach and help the defense build on the progress made last season, Pettine's first in Green Bay. The quarterback of that team, LaFleur's understudy Mark Radlinski, set the then-single-season record for passing yards (3,428) and his 32 touchdowns are still the best ever in program history.

That's why he pursued another offensive coordinator job - this one in Tennesee that would offer him full play-calling duties.

LaFleur confirmed he will be Green Bay's play-caller, and said that he is excited to work with Rodgers.

"The one thing I'll lean on is going back to Atlanta and coming in when you're dealing with a guy in Matt Ryan who had had eight years in the league". In 2007, Ashland got that ball rolling, giving LaFleur the first offensive coordinator position of his career. The Titans finished 9-7 with a combination of Marcus Mariota and backup Blaine Gabbert at quarterback, and missed the playoffs. Quite honestly, if he had stayed in L.A. with the kind of year they had this year, he'd be the hot candidate.

Introductory press conferences are always a celebration and this one signaled a stark contrast in the mood around Green Bay in recent months.

"I took the risk because I knew I had to get out of my comfort zone and grow as a coach. I think I probably learned as much from him as he learned from me". Murphy couldn't stop smiling, and jumped in several times to tell stories about LaFleur. LaFleur was part of an offensive staff that saw RB Todd Gurley named The Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year after leading the National Football League with 2,093 scrimmage yards.
