Former Irish quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur has officially been named to the same position with the Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons announced a slew of staff changes Tuesday under new head coach Dan Quinn. LaFleur spent one season in South Bend tutoring the Irish quarterbacks.

Before arriving at Notre Dame, LaFleur served as the quarterbacks coach of the Washington Redskins for four seasons.

The Mount Pleasant, Michigan native had previously coached under Irish head coach Brian Kelly as an offensive assistant for two seasons at Central Michigan.

Former Irish assistant coaches Tony Alford (Ohio State) and Kerry Cooks (Oklahoma) recently landed at new schools, too.

Notre Dame is scheduled to begin spring practice March 2.
