How Matt LaFleur's Wife BreAnne Traded Her Career for His NFL Dream

She made the ultimate choice for her family.

Matt LaFleur, the dynamic head coach of the Green Bay Packers, has made a significant impact since assuming his role. In his tenure beginning in 2019, LaFleur has revitalized the Packers' approach to the game, exemplified by his impressive start at the historic Lambeau Field. In his first season as the coach, he led the Packers to an outstanding 13-3 record, a testament to his strategic prowess and leadership skills. This included a victory in the divisional playoff against the Seattle Seahawks, although their journey ended in the NFC Championship, where they were bested by the San Francisco 49ers.

LaFleur's second season in 2020 mirrored this success with another remarkable 13-3 record, further establishing the Packers as a formidable force in the NFC North. Despite a repeat loss to the 49ers in the NFC Divisional Round, the resilience and skill of the Green Bay team under LaFleur's guidance are undeniable, marking them as a team that should never be underestimated.

His 2021 season with The Packers was also historic, as they became the first NFL team ever to attain a record of 13 wins per season for three straight years. Despite a stellar regular season, they fell in the first round of the playoffs to the San Francisco 49ers.

In 2022, The Packers failed to make the playoffs for the first time with LaFleur as head coach. But in 2023, LaFleur and The Packers have another shot at rectifying their poor postseason performance. They'll take on the Cowboys on Sunday, January 14, in the Wild Card Round.

At just 44 years old, LaFleur represents the new generation of NFL coaches, standing alongside other young coaching talents like Sean McVay and Kliff Kingsbury. Amidst his rising fame and the national attention focused on his professional achievements, there's been curiosity about LaFleur's personal life. Contrary to what some admirers might have hoped, LaFleur is not a bachelor; he is happily married and a father to two children, sharing his life's journey with his family. Get to know Matt LaFleur's wife and biggest cheerleader, BreAnne LaFleur.

Matt LaFleur is married to BreAnne LaFleur. She was originally BreAnne Maak before taking Matt's hand in marriage. BreAnne has been alongside Matt for a long time and has relocated all over the country during his football coaching career. A little bio of BreAnne: She was born in 1983 to her parents, Jane Marie and Irvin Maak Wener

Matt played wide receiver at Mount Pleasant High School and Western Michigan University before transferring to Division II's Saginaw Valley State Cardinals. His coaching career began as a graduate assistant at SVS and included stops at Central Michigan University, Northern Michigan and Ashland University in Ohio.

According to The Tennessean, BreAnne used to sell pharmaceuticals when the two lived in Ohio. She made decent money doing it but was forced to give up her job so they could move to Houston.

LaFleur's break in the National Football League came with the Houston Texans in 2008. He helped coach wide receivers and quarterbacks under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. He then became the quarterback coach of the Washington Redskins, Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Atlanta Falcons before serving as OC of the Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans football teams.

In 2010, he and his wife talked to about joining Washington's coaching staff.

"There's a lot of work to do," she said. "I have a career (as a pharmaceutical representative), where there aren't a ton of jobs available. Hopefully I can find a position where I can transfer. Then we have to get a moving company...It'll be one of the easier moves we've made since I won't have to do everything."

"(My wife and I) are lucky to be going to another great organization," LaFleur told "The Redskins have been very helpful. They're putting us up for a time while we search for a new place to live."

How Many Children Does Matt LaFleur Have?

Matt and BreAnne have two young sons together: Luke and Ty. BreAnne posts to her Facebook and social media often about them.

Apparently, the family is very close with Matt's younger brother, Mike LaFleur, who served as the passing game coordinator for the 49ers in 2020 before becoming the New York Jets offensive coordinator this season. When the two brothers faced each other in 2019, BreAnne and their two sons stayed with Mike at his California house, per ESPN.

Matt and Mike's parents, Kristi and Denny LaFleur, are likely the reason the family is so football-focused. Their father played linebacker at CMU while Kristi was a cheerleader, per They both then worked as physical education teachers.

Relatively new head coach Matt LaFleur likely has a long career ahead of him in the NFL. Whether it will be with the Packers in Wisconsin or somewhere else, there's no doubt his wife and kids will be by his side.
