Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers NFL Matchup
When Green Bay coach Matt LaFleur started preparing to face San Francisco’s stellar defense, he sent out a text message trying to get some inside information.
”Hey, would you give me a call? I have a couple of questions about your defense,” LaFleur said he messaged 49ers coordinator Robert Saleh, his former roommate when the two were graduate assistants at Central Michigan.
Saleh predictably didn’t give up any secrets, although there should be few heading into Sunday night’s game between the Packers (8-2) and 49ers (9-1) considering all the ties between the two coaching staffs.
LaFleur considers Saleh one of his best friends, worked under San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan in Houston, Washington and Cleveland, and has a brother, Mike, on the Niners staff.
Shanahan spent a year as offensive coordinator when Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine was head coach in Cleveland, but said none of that will matter on Sunday.
”You don’t really think about that much,” he said. ”It’s more fun that when you’re going to hang out in the offseason or see each other down in Indy; it’s a little more fun that night when you won the game so you can mess with the other a little bit more.”
LaFleur got his first NFL job as a quality control assistant in Houston when Shanahan was offensive coordinator after a recommendation from Saleh. He then worked as quarterbacks coach under Shanahan in Washington and Atlanta and has taken many of the lessons he learned during those stints into his first year as a head coach.
