The Packers held a news conference on Wednesday to welcome new head coach Matt LaFleur to Green Bay.
The 39-year-old first-time head coach reportedly agreed to a four-year contract, with the option for a fifth year, on Tuesday night after arriving in Green Bay.

Packers president Mark Murphy and general manager Brian Gutekunst — especially Murphy — are banking their reputations on LaFleur.
More than anything else, LaFleur’s success or failure as the 15th coach in the Packers’ storied 100-year history will be decided by just how well his two-time NFL MVP plays after a down year.
"I know he's a smart guy, and we'll just have to see how he approaches his new job," the defensive lineman said. "It's going to be exciting to get a new, fresh voice in here, no matter if he's offensive- or defensive-minded."
