Titans Hire Matt LaFleur As OC

The Titans announced that they have hired Matt LaFleur as their new offensive coordinator. LaFleur previously served as the Rams’ offensive coordinator. Matt LaFleur (Vertical)

Technically, this represents a lateral move for LaFleur, though he did not call plays in Los Angeles when he worked under head coach Sean McVay. Serving under a defensive-minded coach in Mike Vrabel, LaFleur should have flexibility to do things his way.

LaFleur is inexperienced as an OC, having served just one season in the role. In his favor, LaFleur did guide Matt Ryan to an MVP campaign just a year ago as quarterbacks coach in Atlanta. Then, last year, Jared Goff excelled under LaFleur’s tutelage. Given the 38-year-old’s QB acumen, the Titans are hopeful that he can get the most out of Marcus Mariota.

On Tuesday morning, the Titans also made the hiring of Dean Pees as defensive coordinator official.

      Agreed, should’ve been promoted to OC in place of Shanahan. Seemed like the natural fit to keep the offense rolling. I’m sure there would’ve been a learning curve in Year one but it couldn’t have been any worse than it was this year…oh well

    I like Vrabel, but I don’t see him succeeding with the Titans

    He will obviously get full control of play calling. He will be a head coach within the next 3 years
