Matt LaFleur learned of Packers’ hiring from Adam Schefter

Adam Schefter ESPN

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is so good at his job as an NFL insider that sometimes he knows about hirings and firings before the people getting hired and fired do.

For instance, Schefter was the first to report the Green Bay Packers’ decision to hire Matt LaFleur as head coach. Not only did he inform the general public first, but he was actually the first to tell LaFleur.

It has to be a rather strange feeling to learn from an NFL reporter that you’re about to become a head coach for the first time instead of learning it from the team hiring you.

Schefter isn’t quite perfect, but he’s pretty close in terms of his own original reporting. Scooping new hires before the team hiring them can say something is evidence enough of that.
