The Jordan Love era is just getting started for the Green Bay Packers, and the new man in charge has already shown great progress.

 

 

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur says quarterbacks coach Tom Clements deserves a big share of the the credit. “Just watching him last year. I think Jordan’s made some huge strides,” LeFleur told reporters Saturday (via NFL.com).

“I really do and I think a lot of it is a credit to Tom, and just, he knows how to train these guys. He knows how to drill them and he’s very, very consistent. He doesn’t sugarcoat anything. He just is matter of fact and I think there’s no doubt.”

Clements, 69, played quarterback in the CFL and briefly in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs. He’s spent the past 30 years mostly as a quarterbacks coach, first with Notre Dame, then in the NFL.

 

 

He also served a stint from 2012-2016 as the Packers offensive coordinator and assistant head coach before joining the Arizona Cardinals to work with Kyler Murray.

 

 

 

 

Clements rejoined the Packers as QB coach in 2022, and LaFleur said the veteran coach and young quarterback work well together. “I asked Jordan after the season how he felt about him and he said he loved Tom, and thought he did a helluva job helping him, you know, develop over the course of the year,” LaFleur said.

“For me, it was a no-brainer. It was just whether or not Tom wanted to come back, so I’m happy he wanted to be here, and you know, we’re lucky to have him.

“He does a great job, too, not only with the quarterbacks but just helping out with our offense and bringing suggestions and great ideas.”

“You know, it’s been a fun process getting to know him and just the standards that he holds, that room, too, and he does a helluva job.” Love, the Packers’ first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, faces high expectations this season, despite throwing only 83 NFL passes to date.
