GREEN BAY, Wisc. (WBAY) Creating a healthy, working partnership is a top priority for Matt LaFleur and company. He and his staff are looking to coach Aaron Rodgers and the Packers to success in 2019.
“It’s great. We got three quarterback guys that are going to be hitting him from all angles,” Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur said. “I'm going to do my part. I know I need to be in that room as much as I possibly can because I am going to be the playcaller. I think that relationship between the playcaller and the player is absolutely critical.”
Matt LaFluer's relationships with his newly hired offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and quarterbacks coach Luke Getsy are also important.
The three are working to get on the same wavelength before work with Aaron Rodgers begins.
“We all know Luke (Getsy), myself, Matt (LaFleur), we all know it's about one voice,” Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said. “I mean there's so many times—if you give mixed messages to anybody on the field. I mean it's not just about Aaron (Rodgers). It's anybody. You know, really my whole job is to make sure that everyone is speaking the same language.”
“Coach LaFleur is leading us, Coach Hackett as well,” Packers quarterbacks coach Luke Getsy said. “Right now, we're getting ourselves on the same page so that way when everyone gets back here in April. You know, we're all speaking the same language, all on the same page, and moving forward and growing together from that point on.”
For Getsy, growing with Rodgers should be easy. The two already have an established relationship from Getsy's previous stint in Green Bay.
“You know I had to opportunity to speak to him a little bit, we're both excited,” Getsy said. “You know like I said before, there's a mutual respect that we have for each other. We’re really excited to get together again and help make this thing what we know it can be.”
For everyone that was a fan of Getsy's unconventional wide receiver drills, you can expect more of the same now that he’s the Packers quarterbacks coach.
“We’re to have some fun,” Getsy said. “We're going to compete all the time. We're going to find a way to keep it creative, and fun, and competing every single day, so they'll be some goodies."
