Gideon Yu, the former Facebook CFO unceremoniously shown the door in late March, has joined Khosla Ventures as a General Partner, we’ve heard from multiple sources.

Prior to Facebook, Yu has held positions at Yahoo (SVP Finance), YouTube (CFO) and, most recently, a short stint as a partner at Sequoia Capital. He is credited with being one of the main architects of the landmark $1.65 billion Google acquisition of YouTube in 2006.

Khosla Ventures has been in the news recently – they are raising another $1 billion to fund investments in a wide variety of startups (Internet, cleantech, mobile, fundamental science, etc.). A list of their investments is on their Crunchbase profile.

This is the second former Sequoia partner to join Khosla Ventures. Pierre Lamond joined the firm in March 2009.
