ATLANTA, Ga. (WBAY) - It’s pretty crazy to think that Rams’ head coach Sean McVay has arrived on this Super Bowl stage at the ripe young age of 33. Crazier still to think McVay is already growing a coaching tree within the league. New Packers coach Matt LaFleur worked with McVay at multiple NFL stops en route to the big job in Green Bay.
"You look at a coach like Matt Lafleur. He has done such a great job." LaFleur said. "This is a reflection of the organizational success we have had with the Rams. He is a great football coach. I thought he did an outstanding job with Tennessee leading those guys calling plays as offensive coordinator this year. He is someone I have grown really close with, just going back to when we first started working together in Washington. Any time guys have the ability to take the next step, it’s always a reflection of an organization’s success. And I think what is good about what we have going right here is we have a continuity between the coaches, the personnel, and the players. Everyone has that shared ownership. It all starts with people and building and developing those relationships. That’s exactly what I expect Matt to do as a leader. He is extremely smart and a great communicator. Unless we play the Packers, I will be rooting for Matt and wishing him nothing but the best. I think he will do a great job."
