Washington Post: LaFleur expected to join Shanahan on Redskins' staff

According to the Washington Post's "Redskins Insider" blog, Texans offensive assistant Matt LaFleur is **expected to be hired by the Washington Redskins** within the next couple of days. *Post *contributor Barry Svrluga suggests that LaFleur would be replacing Chirs Meidt, a Redskins offensive assistant who was let go by Mike Shanahan on Tuesday morning.

LaFleur, 29, spent the past two seasons with the Texans. He worked closely with Kyle Shanahan (who's **now the Redskins' offensive coordinator**) in coaching the Texans' quarterbacks in 2009. LaFleur worked primarily with Texans wide receivers in 2008.

"Kyle has to be comfortable with a person he's worked with, someone he already has a relationship with," Meidt said, per Svrluga. "I've been a head coach. I understand the staff dynamics."

Stay tuned to see if this report becomes a reality. No official comment on LaFleur has been made by the Texans.
