Instant Reaction: Packers to hire Matt LaFleur as head coach

Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press Gazette joined The Mike Heller Show to offer instant reaction to the reports that the Packers will hire Matt LaFleur as their next head coach.

Dougherty speculates on how the Packers came to the decision on LaFleur, believing his history with some of the league's top quarterbacks was one of the major factors in his hire. LaFleur has worked in the past with top quarterbacks like Matt Ryan and Jared Goff.

In regards to the interview process, Dougherty says the Packers didn't necessarily need to wait for a second interview to bring in who they thought would be their guy, especially with a coaching staff in limbo.
