Incoming Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur is wanting to keep some of the team's current assistants in place as he takes over. 

E-S-P-N-dot-com is reporting the retention of defensive coordinator Mike Pettine is a priority for the 39-year-old LaFleur.  The Packers defense was in the middle of the pack in total yards allowed and scoring defense, but Pettine was given a lot of credit for his organizational work.  Interim head coach Joe Philbin could also be retained by LaFleur.
