    It sounds like they've asked permission to speak to Lions DC Mark Washington about the position (according to Farhan Lalji) Strange as it's only really a lateral move.

    Wow. Washington's D didn't look too good against Hammy in the crossover game.

    For some strange reason it seems that rookie HCs go the way of taking on a coordinator position on top of their new HC job.

    Before it could have been an ego thing or just not trusting that someone else could do as good a job , now with the mgt cap and limited coaches we could see it with even some well established HC's. As someone that listed to his first Grey Cup in 1954 I see this new cap as a step backwards. CIS ball has grown so much in the last decade and now we seem to be giving these coaches less opportunity to get a CFL job.

    Lateral in terms of the position, but if a new HC in BC will want to bring in his own people, it could be about finding a good chair before the music stops.

    Fully agree. This is, imo, a significant step back for the CFL and the quality of the game potentially. Coaches, in particular, work some crazy hours in season, and now there will be more to spread across fewer shoulders.

    I could understand something that checked the growth from where we're at now and somewhat leveled the playing field, but this is seeming to be causing cuts, not just protecting against unchecked growth. I think it is tremendously short-sighted.

    Well sometimes u have to.. If your hiring clay brooks for his defensive prowess then he goes and hires bene as his dc because he needs to have one.. then really ain’t gaining what you set out to achieve

    As you may recall, there are some on here that don’t trust what I say, so I thought they would appreciate cited sources. Wasn’t sure if APA or ICJME (or another) format was preferred, so they should let me know.

    I guess I now understand why the Tiger-Cats were looking for permission to speak to Mark Washington about their DC job. I have a feeling he might not be back with the Lions. Of course I've been wrong about every coaching prediction so far, lol.

    Re: CFL Offseason 2018/19

    Three new HC's in the past week or so. All from the defensive side of the ball. All relatively young. All former players. All African-American.

    None with obvious direct ties to some of the major coaching trees (Buono, Mathews, Trestman).

    I like the fits in each case.

    DC positions open in Edm, Cgy, Ham for sure, and possibly BC too. Going to be some further movement likely as Claybrooks builds out his staff, and will be interesting to see how/where he brings in experience around him, whereas Champlin has some experience as a HC and Coach O inherits it in his staff.

    With free agency being what it is this year, as happy as the Stamps likely are for Claybrooks personally, this could be a tough off-season for them in terms of retaining some key players.

    Wondering also what this means for a guy like Reilly. Salary is likely to be equal wherever he lands, as is contract structure, so one of the keys will be chances to win and fit for the system. He has a lot of known elements in Edm, and a chance to influence the direction in the coming months through conversation while still under contract. BC will be building offence somewhat from scratch in terms of scheme and personnel. Am I alone in thinking that this move may put them closer to a rebuilding approach than a push to win now?

    Does every team in the CFL already have a picture of Stubs in their jacket?

    Only Ottawa, Regina and Wpg don't. What stands out is the number of times he has been hired again by teams. This will be his 4th time in BC, been in Toronto 4 times also and 3 times with the Esks.

    Def an interesting choice.. almost polar opposites in terms of defensive philosophy!

    Very curious to see if the lions hang onto jj... I could see someone like dinwiddie get a shot at Oc under claybrooks

    I believe they mentioned on the last Esk podcast that all our import receivers are FA's. Mitchell looked to be better than some of the others that started more games than he did.

    If that was an eskimo we would be accused of taping up...

    Re: CFL Offseason 2018/19

    CFL.ca announcing the Blue Bombers have signed ," special teams ace", Mike Miller to a two year extension. Bomber GM, Kyle Walters saying a lot of good things about him.

    Not big news in the FA wars for sure , but we had this guy and for some reason he left. The last two years here we have grabbed every recycled FB-TE type national that was still breathing. You see so many missed tackles from our ST's. That KR by the Lions in the last BC game was brutal to watch. Maybe we should drag the Wolverine out of retirement. Good luck to the new ST coach.

    There's a new Big Dog in the house:

    John Bender

    5 of the 9 @CFL head coaches worked under Hufnagel for the @calstampeders at some point.
    Claybrooks in BC
    Jones in Saskatchewan
    Chamblin in Toronto
    Campbell in Ottawa
    Dickenson in Calgary
