    2) Who hired Jones as coach?

    Looks like Ed is rolling up his sleeves right away.

    Nice way to say Merry Christmas. Maybe better to get it done quickly so they can be available if a good spot opens up. Just my take here, but usually doesn't the head coach choose his own staff. It seems an unusual situation in BC with Wally still there and his staff getting the gas pipe. You would have to believe that Wally chose all the staff from last year.

    It would be my guess with Wally still being head coach, that this is more his decision than Ed’s.

    With Marcello Simmons now looking for a job , just wondering if we would look at him as ST coach, the position he held in BC. Not that our ST's could use improving. Simmons played in Edm as a player and was DB coach here in 2012.

    I just can't believe Wally was that pi$$ed at his guys that he would axe them. It's certainly possible I guess.

    My first thought is that perhaps he plans on bringing in a new OC or Special Teams coordinator that will transition to head coach next year? Maybe Mark Washington stays and gets promoted next year?
    Guess we'll find out soon enough.

    Could be. It seems Wally appears to be just a figurehead and to me it seems he is actually in the way. It's good that EH is calling the shots because the Lions have been kinda stuck in neutral lately . Again, just me , but maybe Wally should have gracefully stepped aside.

    Sounded like Ed wanted Wally around for a year to help with the transition. At least that is what I got from his interviews so far.

    Good, thanks. CT scan end of Feb. and Doc beginning of March. We'll see what changed in the last 6 months. Hopefully, nothing.

    The work that was done to restore this franchise will be undone quickly.
    I hit them as hard as I could on the mouth right from the start of the game so they were thinking this was going to be a long day. Sooner or later one of us had to quit. And it wasn't going to be me.

    I honestly wonder if the BOD and Rhodent are shocked that Ed is back in the league as GM already.

    I have visions of the BOD huddled behind sandbags and barbed wire, pizza boxes all over the place, with a rotary dial phone. Actually someone here made the decision to take the high road and give permission to employees to seek another opportunity. I might be wrong but I think all contracts are valid til Jan. 1st. Not what we endured when Jones left.

    Re: Ed Hervey Named BC Lions GM

    I just read on twitter that Hervey has named Torey Hunter as the Lions new Director of Player Development. Hunter has spent the last 4 seasons as a regional scout for the Esks. So one of the guys that helped find the likes of Walker, Zylstra, McCoil, Grymes, etc. So the poaching of the Esks really good scouting staff begins. YAY!! Thanks Rhodes. But winning is not enough remember.
    Remember winning is not enough according to Len Rhodes, President of a professional sports team.

    You have to wonder how many more of Hervey's scouting staff will be Lions soon.

    Looking at the NFL , they change football operations people all the time. Not much turmoil when it happens. I believe it's a little different in the CFL. Any player that thinks he will be drafted , certainly won't look north til all the other options are over. Guys like Hunter have established relationships with staff from smaller schools where players could fly under the NFL radar. We lost a lot of good will when Hunter left. Tough to replace him.

    I'd expect Malvin Hunter almost certainly, and would not be surprised if we lost Cdn Scout Rob Ralph
