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.
