ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the Packers were "zeroing in" on LaFleur.

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

President Mark Murphy has tabbed 39-year-old Matt LaFleur as the 15th coach in franchise history, a source confirmed to The Athletic Wisconsin, with both sides working to finalize a deal Monday afternoon.

LaFleur led Tennessee to the NFL's No. 27 scoring offense in 2018. Quarterback Marcus Mariota had his least-productive season in four years as a passer, averaging 180.6 yards per game through the air while throwing 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

The 39-year-old coordinator will become the third youngest coach head in the National Football League if he accepts Green Bay's offer. The job could be a match made in heaven if LaFleur can surround himself with the right coaches because it's clear the talent is already there for LaFleur to work with.

LaFleur is expected to keep defensive coordinator Mike Pettine on his staff, according to the report. Philbin is also highly respected by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and several other important veterans inside the Packers locker room.
