LaFleur was an offensive assistant under Kelly at Central Michigan, and later was an offensive assistant for the Houston Texans before taking the job with the Redskins.

LaFleur was on staff to help Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins develop. In 2012, Griffin became the first Redskins rookie quarterback selected to the Pro Bowl, led Washington to its first NFC East title in 13 years and set rookie records for passer rating (102.4), rushing yards by a quarterback (815) and lowest percentage of passes had intercepted (1.3).

He was fired along with most of the Redskins staff after a 3-13 season. Notre Dame announced the hire Friday.
