Good morning and welcome to the Packers News Report.

It’s official. The Green Bay Packers have announced that Matt LaFleur has been named the head coach. LaFleur’s opening press conference will take place today at 3 p.m. CT, the team announced.

I’m very interested to hear what LaFleur, president Mark Murphy and general manager Brian Gutekunst have to say today.

The next step for LaFleur is to finalize his coaching staff, which will happen in the coming days and weeks.
