The Green Bay Packers fired head coach Mike McCarthy on Sunday to determine Mark Murphy's most important decision as team president: hiring the man who will oversee the last few years of Aaron Rodgers' career in the NFL.
Make the right attitude and Murphy could position the Packers to win another Super Bowl with Rodgers. Make the wrong attitude, and the last few years of Rodgers career may be very similar to the last four.
Here are 25 candidates the Packers could consider to replace McCarthy in no particular order:
Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur
A former quarterback who is young (39 Years old) and has experience with forward-thinking coaches like Kyle Shanahan and Sean McVay in the NFL. Worked closely with Kirk Cousins, Matt Ryan and Jared Goff.
Patriots Offensive Coordinator Josh McDaniels
The Colts vilified last year, however, has an experience as a head coach and knows how he can best benefit from a coach's future Hall of Famer quarterback. Product by Tom Brady and Bill Belichick or ready to take a second chance?
Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley
The young, hot name in coaching circles and the thought leader of arguably supreme offense college football. Is he the next Sean McVay? Huge boom-bust potential.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh
Super Bowl-winning head coach who brought experience, tenacity and accountability. Has won ten playoff games, the same number as McCarthy.
Packers Defense Coordinator Mike Pettine
After being hired in January, he said he had no interest in being a head coach again, but must be considered. Hard, smart football coach who lives to teach.
Former Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury
Recently banished college coach who is in demand in the NFL. Coached quarterbacks: Case Keenum, Johnny Manziel and Pat Mahomes. Know how to make crime.
Saints Offensive Coordinator Pete Carmichael
Longtime Coordinator under Sean Payton. He grew up coaching around the quarterback position and has consistently helped Payton maximize Drew Brees' performance.
Packers interim coach Joe Philbin
He will get four games for the job. Who knows if he really wants it? Went 24-28 as Dolphins head coach between 201
Does not call games under Andy Reid, but replaces the former NFL retiring, Matt Nagy as Reid & # 39; s top assistant and quickly helped to develop Pat Mahomes into a star.
Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians
Fearless former head coach entering the door on Day 1 and demanding respect Working with top quarterbacks including Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck and Carson Palmer  Vikings Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo
Coached quarterbacks during the Super Bowl run of the Eagles – but occasionally repressive – offenses in Minnesota near Kirk Cousins. Previous work experience with Mike Pettine.
Washington coach Chris Petersen
Highly qualified college coach with a background in coaching offenses, especially quarterbacks. Could the native Californian contact Rodgers?
Cowboys Defensive Defender Coach Kris Richard
Rising coaching prospects that contributed to the development of the dominant Seahawks defense as a defensive back trainer and later as a defensive coordinator. Cowboys Defense stormed with his help in 2018.
Iowa State Coach Matt Campbell
Renewed the college programs in Toledo and Iowa State, but recently signed a major contract with the Cyclones.
] Bengals quarterback coach Alex Van Pelt
Former Packers offensive assistant, closely associated with Aaron Rodgers as quarterback coach from 2014-17.
Stanford coach David Shaw
NFL coaching experience, including as a quarterback coach. Would the chance to train Rodgers lead him to leave a comfortable job in Palo Alto?
Rams passing game coordinator Shane Waldron

Northwestern Coach Pat Fitzgerald
Team President Mark Murphy selected Fitzgerald to take over the 2006 program. He led Northwestern 2018 to the Big 10 title game.
Chiefs Special Team Coordinator Dave Toub
How can you set a never-ending cycle of awful special teams? Give the industry's best his first shot at the show.
Raiders Receiver Coach Edgar Bennett
The former Packers stormed under McCarthy through the coaching stages, but the offense moved hard after being back offensive coordinator in 2015.
Bill's offensive coordinator Brian Daboll
Has connections throughout the league, even in New England. He is currently coordinating a bad offense in Buffalo, but McCarthy coordinated a poor 49er offense before becoming Packers coach in 2006.
Patriots Defense Coordinator Brian Flores
joined the Patriots in 2004 as a scouting assistant by rising through the coaching stages under Bill Belichick. Serious candidate for several jobs last year.
National Coach Jeff Tedford
Deeply respected by Rodgers after coaching him in Cal. For the past two years, the Fresno State program has been revolving after a brief residency as a Buccaneers offensive coordinator in 2014.
Bears Defense Coordinator Vic Fangio
Packers was interested in courting him from Bears last season. Coordinated highly successful defenses at various locations, most recently in San Francisco and Chicago.
Saints' tight-lash coach Dan Campbell

Texan quarterback coach Sean Ryan
Experience the training of quarterbacks and receivers. Development of Odell Beckham in New York. In the development of DeShaun Watson in Houston helped.
Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley
As a head coach in Jacksonville bombed, but his results as a defensive coordinator are impressive, first in Seattle and now in Los Angeles.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh
The 49ers were filmed and eventually took them to the Super Bowl. Is there a chance he can build a lasting relationship with Rodgers?
