Saleh is expected to take 49ers passing-game coordinator Mike LaFleur — the brother of Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur — with him as his offensive coordinator, sources told Schefter.

Saleh, who is Lebanese American, will join Brian Flores of the Miami Dolphins, Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Ron Rivera of the Washington Football Team as active minority head coaches in the league. The 49ers will receive two third-round compensatory draft picks as part of the NFL’s new hiring initiatives to incentivize an expansion of the candidate pool.
