The Washington Redskins have hired Kyle Shanahan as offensive coordinator, Matt LaFleur as quarterbacks coach and Jon Embree as tight ends coach.

The appointment of Shanahan, son of head coach Mike Shanahan, had been known, but the team did not formally announce it until Wednesday. The younger Shanahan had been the Houston Texans' offensive coordinator.

Mike Shanahan called it "a thrill" to have Kyle Shanahan on his staff, "not only because it represents a chance to work with my son."

LaFleur worked with Kyle Shanahan as an offensive assistant for the Texans the last two seasons.

Embree was the Kansas City Chiefs' tight ends coach from 2006-08.
