Former Washington Redskins quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur has accepted a position on Notre Dame’s coaching staff, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed on Thursday.
LaFleur will serve as quarterbacks coach for Notre Dame, reuniting with head coach Brian Kelly, whom LaFleur coached under at Central Michigan in 2004 and ’05.
LaFleur was one of 10 assistants dismissed by the Redskins when they fired Mike Shanahan on Dec. 30. LaFleur is the first of those coaches to find another job. A number of former Redskins coaches are in Mobile, Ala., this week, hoping to network and get the opportunity to talk to other team officials and coaches in hopes of finding new jobs.
LaFleur came to the Redskins after spending two seasons as an offensive quality control coach for the Houston Texans under Kyle Shanahan. Prior to that, he had coaching stints at Ashland University, Northern Michigan, Central Michigan and Saginaw Valley State.
