Shanahan says relationship with Packers coach LaFleur solid

The postgame “handshake” Week 3 at Levi’s Stadium was as icy as a mid-January night in Green Bay.

San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday there is no feud between him and his longtime friend and co-worker, Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bayarea reports. 

“Matt’s my guy,” Shanahan said on Monday in a conference call with Bay Area reporters. “Matt and I are totally good.”

It did not look that way on Sept. 26, when Shanahan blew past LaFleur on the field just moments after Mason Crosby’s 51-yard field goal lifted Green Bay to a 30-28 victory over the 49ers.

The 49ers took the lead with just 37 seconds to play on Jimmy Garoppolo’s 12-yard touchdown pass to fullback Kyle Juszczyk. But Aaron Rodgers led the Packers 42 yards down the field to set up the winning points.

“I was pissed after that game because of how the game just ended,” Shanahan said. “That was a tough one. It took a while to get over.  But we’re good. I talk to Matt a lot. (He’s) done a hell of a job this year — been real happy for him but that stops this week.”

LaFleur and Shanahan first worked together in 2008. LaFleur served as an assistant coach when Shanahan was offensive coordinator in Houston, Washington and Atlanta.
