MOBILE, Ala.—Former Redskins assistant Matt LaFleur has been hired to coach quarterbacks at Notre Dame after spending the past four seasons in Washington.
LaFleur, who received credit for helping Robert Griffin III capture offensive rookie of the year honors as a rookie in 2012, was dismissed on Dec. 30 along with Mike Shanahan and several other members of the Redskins’ staff.
In his new job, LaFleur will be reunited with Brian Kelly. Kelly hired LaFleur at Central Michigan, where LaFleur worked as an offensive assistant in 2004 and 2005.
LaFleur is also believed to be the first assistant from Shanahan’s staff to find employment elsewhere. Meantime, several other out-of-work former assistants such as Keith Burns, Richmond Flowers and Richard Hightower have been spotted networking here at the Senior Bowl.
