Curly Lambeau , Vince Lombardi, Mike Holmgren and Mike McCarthy. Now Matt LaFleur.LaFleur joins a legendary list of Packers coaches, with the team making his hiring official as the 15th head coach in franchise history.“We are very excited to welcome Matt as the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers,” president and chief executive officer Mark Murphy said. “We found a coach with the background and experience that we think will get us back to playing winning football.

He has a tremendous ability to build relationships on multiple levels, which is a very important aspect in leading a football team.” Matt LaFleur mixed up a few things, but not this tradition, which his predecessor started years ago." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesAcme Packing Company homepageHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityFollow Acme Packing Company online:Follow Acme Packing Company on TwitterFollow Acme Packing Company on FacebookFollow Acme Packing Company on InstagramLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchAcme Packing Company main menuFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options forTongueackers maintain minicamp tradition with team-building activities on ThursdayTwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailGreen Bay Press Gazette-USA TODAY NETWORKFor the past several years, the Green Bay Packers excused their longest-tenured veterans from mandatory minicamp at the end of the offseason workout program. This year, under Matt LaFleur, that changed.For the past several years, the Green Bay Packers opened up their minicamp practices to the fans. This year, LaFleur closed of practices.However, LaFleur has elected to stick with one notable minicamp tradition that began under former head coach Mike McCarthy: team-building day. On Wednesday, the Packers announced that they would skip practice on Thursday Randall Cobb Color Rush Jersey , the final day of minicamp, holding team-building activities instead. Technically, the Packers did their team-building day during OTAs a year ago, but that was in part due to the veterans being excused from minicamp.What the Packers will do on Thursday is unknown at this point. Past events have included a dodgeball tournament, skeet-shooting outings, and bowling, but all of these activities have been welcomed warmly by those participating.With LaFleur trying to install a new offense, there was little chance that veterans would get the opportunity to skip minicamp. Each and every week of practice is important for the starters and reserves alike as both groups try to absorb and put into practice the finer points of the new scheme. This may also be why LaFleur elected to close off practices to the public — with the team installing numerous new concepts, it’s reasonable to expect that he wanted to keep those install periods away from prying eyes.But for now, the Packers will have a little fun on their final day before they take a six-week break for the summer. The Packers will report to training camp on July 24th, with the first practice taking place on the 25th.
