Sioux City Journal: LaFleur tabbed to take South Sioux grid helm, 2 Feb 2005 [cached]
LaFleur tabbed to take South Sioux grid helm
Matt LaFleur knows a thing or two about successful high school football programs.His alma mater, Bishop Heelan High School, has compiled a 51-9 record since LaFleur joined head coach Roger Jansen's staff seven seasons ago.
South Sioux City, hoping to tap into LaFleur's experience as both an outstanding athlete and coach, has named the 30-year-old its head football coach.
"On behalf of the South Sioux City Activities Department, we are honored to have Matt joining our coaching staff," said Kelly Flynn, the SSC activities director.
"Matt has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success as a multiple sport athlete and has gained valuable experience in coaching football, wrestling and track.
"Matt is very organized and he knows the amount of time it takes to run a successful program."
LaFleur replaces Al Carothers, who stepped down after seven seasons as South Sioux City football coach.
"The way I'm looking at it, there's only room for improvement," said LaFleur, a 1992 Heelan graduate who's worked in various capacities as a Heelan assistant.
LaFleur earned All-Metro and All-Northwest Iowa plaudits as an offensive lineman on the gridiron and was a two-year varsity letterwinner in wrestling.
He parlayed his success as a discus thrower -- LaFleur was the Drake Relays medalist and a an Iowa state runner-up -- into a collegiate track and field career.LaFleur lettered three seasons at Iowa State and was a member of the 1994 Big 8 Conference outdoor championship team.He also lettered two seasons at South Dakota State, where he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1997.
In addition to his duties as an assistant football coach at Heelan, LaFleur was also a wrestling assistant for six seasons and head coach for three.He's also coached the throwers on the track team the last eight seasons.LaFleur teaches seventh and eighth grade science at Holy Cross-Blessed Sacrament in Sioux City.
"One thing we want to be cautious about is the fact that we're not going over there to create another Heelan High School," said LaFleur, who is working on assembling a coaching staff.
LaFleur will begin teaching for the South Sioux City Community School District in August.
"I'm thrilled with the selection of Matt LaFleur," said South Sioux City High School prinicpal Pat Nauroth.
South Sioux City's first game under LaFleur will be on Sept. 2 at home against Vermillion, S.D.

It was a tough loss for the team, but coach Matt LaFleur is looking forward to playing them on Liberty's home turf.
"Playing the Spartans is extremely difficult because they do such a tremendous job in all aspects of the game," said LaFleur."I told our players I thought we played hard, but not necessarily smart.Hopefully this experience will motivate them to continue to work hard to improve their game."
Matt LaFleur now heads up the boys program and the varsity team, replacing Mark Johnson; Al Brondolo is the new freshman boys coach, and Nicole Norris, a 1998 Liberty graduate, has taken the reigns for the frosh girls team.
After coaching the freshmen boys team for two years, LaFleur stepped into the head coaching job as soon as the opportunity presented itself.He also was a high school coach for five years in Fremont before coming to Brentwood.
LaFleur teaches world history at Liberty and enjoys working with kids.He fulfilled a dream when he took the head position.
"It's a lot of respect and a different position," said LaFleur."People question your judgment, but if you're in charge, you get to instill values you think are important in helping these guys succeed."
For LaFleur, team camaraderie among players and coaches is the best part of his job.He said he has always gotten more satisfaction accomplishing things as a team than as an individual.
Of this year's varsity team, he said he has an interesting mix of players.
"Most are returning from last year, but they weren't starters so it's taken them some time to get comfortable with each other and the new offensive and defensive philosophy," he explained.
LaFleur's goal for the squad is to compete on a nightly basis and to "build a respectable program that when somebody looks at it, they'll know the kids play hard, play together and understand what it means to be a team player."

Even at Saturday night's Iowa State ..., 2 Oct 2011 [cached]
Even at Saturday night's Iowa State game, South Sioux City coach Matt LaFleur was getting asked about one of the most astounding comebacks in Nebraska high school history:
"People would said, 'I can't believe it,' but well, that's what happened," LaFleur said Sunday.
LaFleur said Offerman told him after the game that he was worried that "the coaches were going to kill me for cutting up inside."
"We'd like to get to week nine with Blair knowing we're in on a wild card and playing for a district championship," LaFleur said.
