McDaniel is currently the Run Game Coordinator in SF under Shanahan. He worked with LaFleur as an offensive assistant in Atlanta, and in Washington as the Wide Receivers coach.
He's 35 years old, graduated from Yale and known around the league as that awkward, introverted, football brainiac. If Rodgers wants intelligent coaches, he might be a great fit.
Given the relationship between the coaches, I'd be shocked if Shanahan blocks him. And I'm sure LaFleur wants to bring him in some capacity.
