The word broke twenty-four hour ago -- and Notre Dame just made if official this afternoon. Matt LaFleur, the QB coach of the Washington Redskins has agreed to accept the same position for the Fighting Irish!
He will be officially introduced at a Press Conference set for Monday, Feburary 3rd at 11 AM.
LaFleur has ties to Coach Kelly -- working on his staff at Central Michigan in 2004 and 2005. He comes to Notre Dame with six years of NFL coaching experience. The past four seasons LaFleur was working under the Shanahan's in Washington -- coaching their QB's RG III, Kirk Cousins, Donovan McNabb and Rex Grossman.
Here's what I could find on the web about Coach LaFleur:
