The search for a new head coach might have lingered for more than a month, but the Packers moved swiftly once they found a candidate they liked.

Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur received an offer from the Packers to be their next head coach, according to ESPN on Monday.

If LaFleur accepts the offer, he will become the 15th coach for the Green Bay Packers.

A source said LaFleur would like to keep defensive coordinator Mike Pettine on board.

I am meeting another one tomorrow", he said. "He played an incredible game, created a lot of chances and he has the vision to see what other people can not see".

LaFleur, 39, spent one year as the Titans offensive coordinator. Things could change in a big way for Green Bay with LaFleur making offensive decisions in accordance with Rodgers. He will replace Mike McCarthy, who coached the Packers for 13 seasons before being fired in early December.

Before the Titans, LaFleur was the Rams' offensive coordinator under Sean McVay, though he didn't call the plays.

LaFleur, who has been in the National Football League since 2008, also served as the quarterbacks coach for the Redskins and Falcons.
