Matt LaFleur hired by Notre Dame

1/23/2014

Former Washington Redskins quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur landed a job with the same role -- but at a different level. He has been hired as the University of Notre Dame's quarterbacks coach, a source close to him confirmed Thursday.

LaFleur served as the Redskins' quarterbacks coach from 2010-13 and was among the 10 assistants fired after the season. He's the first of those coaches to be hired. Fired offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan remains in the running for the same position with the Baltimore Ravens. The Baltimore Sun reported that he will be interviewed a second time for the job. A decision on that job could be made by the end of this week.

LaFleur will be reunited with Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly, with whom he coached at Central Michigan from 2004-05. LaFleur made the jump to the NFL in 2008 as a quality control coach with Houston before joining the Redskins two years later.
