Matt LaFleur's nomadic career has moved him across the country into different locker rooms in different cities, preparing him for the opportunity to coach at the highest level. 

LaFleur's NFL coaching career began in 2008 when he was hired by the Houston Texans as an offensive assistant.

Two years later, he was on his way to the nation's capital to help mold the two new quarterbacks drafted by the Burgundy and Gold, Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins.

"I just think I learned so much from Mike Shanahan and Kyle Shanahan," LaFleur said during an appearance on NBC Sports Washington's DC Sports Live. "Just being around guys like Sean McVay, and a lot of great coaches, a lot of great memories that I took from that experience."

In 2014 he ventured to South Bend, Indiana, to become the the QB Coach at Notre Dame.

The following year he returned to the NFL, rejoining Kyle Shanahan, who served as the OC during their time together in Washington, on his staff in Atlanta as their new QB Coach.

In 2017 he moved to Southern California to become the offensive coordinator of the Los Angeles Rams under his former colleague from D.C., Sean McVay, who remained the primary play caller.

In 2018 he moved to Nashville, to take the reins as the OC and play caller for the Tennessee Titans. 

On Jan. 8, he was named head coach of the Green Bay Packers, packing his bags up north.
