Falcons assistant Mike LaFleur joining 49ers to coach WRs

Feb 9, 2017 at 9:51 AM--


It was already known that Atlanta Falcons offensive assistant Mike LaFleur would be joining Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. However, there was some confusion about what his role might be. Alex Marvez of the Sporting News is clarifying that by reporting that LaFleur will be joining the 49ers as the team's wide receivers coach.


The confusion occurred because Marvez originally reported on Monday that Mike McDaniel would be joining the 49ers as the team's wide receivers coach. Those are two different Mikes and it does not help that Mike LaFleur's brother, Matt LaFleur, was on the Falcons coaching staff. He served as their quarterbacks coach in 2016 and will be the offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams in 2017.

Prior to the San Francisco 49ers' NBC Sunday Night Football matchup with the Los Angeles Rams, sideline reporter Michelle Tafoya asked each player from both teams for three words which best describe their respective head coach. The point of the exercise was to highlight the similarities between the two young coaches, which was a common theme throughout the broadcast. Four of the words provided were identical, and the remainder were relatively similar. However, Shanahan's descriptors formed the image of a "smart" and "relentless"

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick praised San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle this week while on a conference call with reporters. "Kittle is a great player," Belichick said. "He does everything well. I'd put him right at the top of the league there, period. ... He's as good as anybody that I've coached or as good as anybody that we've played against." Added Belichick: "He's a great player. I don't think there's a tight end in the league, and we've seen a lot of good ones and had a lot of good ones, but I don't think there's anybody in the league that does everything overall as well as he does.
