Matt became the talk of the town when he was appointed as the head coach of Green Bay Packers back in 2019. But along with his career achievement, his personal life also grabbed attention significantly.
Although the head coach is not very flashy about his personal life, Matt addressing his family at the first press conference at Packers as its head coach indeed proves he is a big family guy at heart. He remarked,
I’m all about family. I love my family.
Matt is married to his wife BreAnn, who is a pharmaceutical representative. As a supportive partner, BreAnn has been with Matt since day one and never once hesitated to move around due to Matt's job.
Talking to MLB, Matt's wife once shared a few words about moving for Matt's work, saying,
I have a career where there aren't a ton of jobs available. Hopefully, I can find a position where I can transfer.
Matt and BreAnn's relationship dates back to their college days when both of them were attending Central Michigan University.

Well, the pair's love story began with not so fondly start as BreAnn once mentioned in an interview with Packers News. As she mentioned, their first encounter in college began with Matt harshly yelling at her on the football field. In her words,
He yelled for me to get out of the way. There probably was more vulgar language that I remember, he doesn’t.
However, Matt denied ever yelling at her. Little did the couple know they would be parents to their two sons, Luke and Ty.
The pair welcomed their firstborn, Luke, in 2011, while their younger one was born in 2013. BreAnn once gushed about her husband being a loving father to their kids, saying,
It’s amazing to see him go from this passionate football coach and coming home and doing nothing but wrestling with my kids, and having a great time. Always a smile on his face. He’s just an absolute people person, and that’s what I love most about him.
Indeed, Matt is winning as a responsible person who knows how to balance eveything from the football arena to his home.
