Someone who will inspire. That's why Payton and Tomlin and BB are still around. Cause they inspire their teams.

I enter my favorite candidate Matt Lafleur :



Coaching career
College
LaFleur's coaching career began at his alma mater, Saginaw Valley State, in 2003 where he served as an offensive graduate assistant. During which time Matt also substitute taught in the local highschools, specializing in math. He proceeded to Central Michigan University where, from 2004–2005, he assisted the offensive staff. In 2006, he coached quarterbacks and receivers at Northern Michigan University. He was the offensive coordinator at Ashland University in 2007. In 2014 he served as the quarterbacks coach at the University of Notre Dame.
Houston Texans
LaFleur then was hired in 2008 by the Houston Texans to serve as an offensive assistant. He assisted both wide receivers and quarterbacks during his two-year stint there and developed a close relationship with coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

Washington Redskins
When Shanahan's father Mike was hired by the Redskins, Kyle brought LaFleur to Washington to coach the quarterbacks.[2] A primary responsibility of LaFleur's for the 2012 season was to mentor rookie quarterbacks Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins, whom LaFleur was particularly fond of.[3]

Atlanta Falcons
On February 5, 2015, LaFleur was hired to be the Quarterbacks coach for the Atlanta Falcons working under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, whom he previously had worked under when with the Washington Redskins. Matt's brother, Mike, was the offensive assistant with the Falcons as well.[4]
In the 2016 season, LaFleur and the Falcons reached Super Bowl LI, where they faced the New England Patriots on February 5, 2017. In the Super Bowl, the Falcons fell in a 34–28 overtime defeat.[5]

Los Angeles Rams
On February 8, 2017, LaFleur joined the Los Angeles Rams coaching staff as the offensive coordinator, working under Head Coach Sean McVay, whom he previously had worked with during his tenure with the Washington Redskins.[6]

Tennessee Titans
On January 30, 2018, LaFleur left his position with the Rams to take the same position with the Tennessee Titans.[7] Joining new head coach Mike Vrabel, LaFleur now has the opportunity of calling the plays for the Titans, essentially being a promotion from his former position as offensive coordinator with the Rams.
Personal life
LaFleur's younger brother, Mike LaFleur, is the wide receivers coach/passing game specialist for the San Francisco 49ers.[8] LaFleur, a native of Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, was a three-year starting quarterback at Saginaw Valley State where he guided his team to the Division II playoffs each season.

LaFleur attended Western Michigan Universityfrom 1998 to 1999 where he played wide receiverbefore transferring in 2000 to Saginaw Valley State, where he played quarterback from 2000 to 2002. LaFleur briefly played in the National Indoor Football League with the Omaha Beef, where he was the backup quarterback. The following summer, LaFleur signed with the Billings Outlaws

Young HC who understands todays offense and is very creative. Could keep Pettine on defense and wouldn't micro manage him.
