And now Orridge has put a stop to future hiring of all coaches. Is this guy a Rider in disguise .

Nah, he's just an idiot who realizes he screwed up by not acting when he should've.

So, with the league halted for the moment, has anyone heard anything? I just checked the Edmonton Sun and Journal, but neither had much, just the same old about Jason Maas. I heard something on TSN about AJ Gass. Not sure how much truth there is to it. And to be honest, I'm not sure I'd like him. I think he'd be a Kavis Reed-type coach, throwing tantrums on the sideline.

Jason Maas is desperate to assemble a coaching staff. Not too many rumours about the persons who could be on the staff. Either newcomers or coaches who are not wanted elsewhere.

What the heck is Hervey doing ? Hasn't signed any coaches, has totally messed up trying to get new ones, no players have had their contracts extended. It seems it's a real cluster duck.

According to an article I saw on Facebook Jason Mass is now HC with Edmonton.

Chief

Rumour is Barron Miles is coming to Edmonton, though not sure in what capacity.

okie

Like the Mike Benevides hire as now you have an established DC who can also help out the rookie HC.

Chief

I just saw the news. http://www.tsn.ca/eskimos-hire-benevide ... r-1.422881

I guess that means Barron Miles is gonna be a position coach. If the rumours are true.

okie

Probably no indication either way, but Kirk Penton says Casey Creehan was hanging around with Jason Maas and Mike Benevides at the Senior Bowl.

Chief

Edmonton has hired Mike Gibson as O-line coach and the running game coordinator. I gotta be honest, I'm not overly impressed. He ran the 8th ranked offence in Ottawa in 2014, and led the Regina Rams to an 0-8 season in 2015. Not exactly a great resume.

The coaching staff has been finalized, and okie was right. Creehan is taking over the DL. Barron Miles will take on the DBs.

Looks like Maas opted for CFL experience vs bringing in rookie coaches to the CFL. Limited pickings so building his staff will be a work in progress over the next couple years.
Everything I write is just an opinion formed from various sources. Some more reliable than others, it is expressed as a composite of facts, innuendos, emotions, personal experiences and complete fabulation into a gumbo for entertainment purposes alone.

Well, Maas got a pretty big endorsement from Reilly. Obviously you'd expect that, but still, it sounds like Reilly is really excited to play for Maas.

My only real concern on the coaching staff is Mike Gibson. He'll have a lot to prove.

That Gibson hire looking pretty good now...hey Chief!
