The Green Bay Packers hired Tim Lester, who used to work with Head Coach Matt LaFleur. Prior to his coaching days, LaFleur was a wide receiver and backup quarterback at Western Michigan in 1998 and 1999 before transferring to Saginaw Valley State and eventually playing in the National Indoor Football League. Over two decades later, LaFleur will again be working with someone from that same staff.
Green Bay Packers Hire Tim Lester As Senior Analyst
According to Matthew Ehler with The Flint Journal, Tim Lester has been hired onto the Green Bay Packers coaching staff as a senior analyst. Lester, a 46-year-old Illinois Native, has ties with Packers head coach Matt LaFleur – they were in the same quarterback room during Western Michigan’s 1998 and 1999 seasons. Lester was the starting quarterback for the Broncos, and LaFleur was his backup.
Western Michigan put together arguably their most successful season under Tim Lester in 2021, going 3-1 in non-conference play, good for an 8-5 season and beating Nevada in the Quick Lane Bowl – their second-ever bowl win in program history. An offensive guru, Lester has served in multiple offensive coordinator positions throughout his 20-plus-year coaching history. He’s served as the quarterback’s coach at Syracuse, Purdue, and WMU, while starting his college head coaching career at NCAA Division II Saint Joseph’s College in 2004.
