Brady is a good choice for continuity and because he knows the Trestovich system inside and out. Chamblin? Well, we'll see.  :D

The hiring of Popp, Trestman, Chamblin and Brady are all the right moves! Great hires!
The Copeland bufoonery of it is, It all could have been done in December instead of March.  :roll:

Yeah, the timing is what's lousy. Should not have taken Copeland until February to get his act together. They're just fortunate that Popp was available and able to bring in experienced people (Trestman and presumably Abrams). Trestman's hire also increased the chance of retaining Brady, since they worked together for many years in Montreal.

Pour ma part, je trouve que l'embauche de Chamblin est une bonne nouvelle... pour leurs adversaires.  Mais il pourrait me faire mentir.  Disons simplement que jusqu'à maintenant, son CV ne parle pas en sa faveur.

Trestman contract is for "North" of $600K/yr for 3 years!
Imagine what Popp got! and how much Chamblin got to walk away from his SSK, HC contract.
MLSE throwing $$$ around is tough on a small League

Richard just had an episode!  :P

"Toronto made a major investment to land Marc Trestman.

The 61-year-old head coach will make north of $600,000 annually on his three-year deal with the Argos, per sources.

Head coaches in the CFL generally earn in the $275,000 to $400,000 range while those with a dual general manager-head coach title can expect a salary in excess of $500,000. For Trestman to be among the top-paid executives in the CFL while solely a head coach is likely to garner attention around the league."

Now you understand why Popp looked like a kid who robbed the candy store :)
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.

En même temps, les résultats devront venir rapidement.  Je vois mal pour l'instant les Argonauts faire des flammèches cette année, à moins que par miracle, Ray demeure en santé toute la saison et que Chamblin se convertisse soudainement en génie défensif.  Être cher payé commande ses exigences.

What candy store are you referring to? The Arblows were and are desperate and had to seek out Trestman and some big name and basically pay him well above league average for a HC. Toronto is the flagship of the CFL and if the Arblows fail, so does the CFL. The big challenge is putting the fans in the seats. With an estimated 3 million people living in the GTA the team has not sold out since John Candy and The Grest were on board. Sad , but that is the reality of Toronto and the Arblows fan base.

Trestman has hired an unprecedented number of assistants for the CFL - 12.

But guess where they are meeting? From this Rod Pedersen story on Tyron Breckenridge:

Brackenridge spoke to us from Raleigh, NC - the home of new Argos coach Marc Trestman - where the Toronto coaching staff was having meetings to prepare for the 2017 season. Brackenridge said it was great getting to know Trestman from the inside.

"When you talk about an awesome guy, that's Marc. He's very humble, very caring, very loving. His mindset is to "build". He's just awesome. He brings a lot of positive energy into the room. He's very knowledgeable and that reflects on what we'll do as a group. It's been awesome to meet him, get to know him, and pick his brain a bit."
I`m not always right, I just think I am.

Unprecedented? Roughriders have 13 assistant coaches.

Popp seems to be settling in with the Argos.

Don't miss him one bit :)

To be fair to Popp, he is coming into an absolute mess of a situation created by Copeland and his dithering. If he'd been hired in December instead of March, a lot of this restructuring would have already happened and allowed players to test free agency.

These players have missed free agency window. It isn't their fault the team took this late to make their decision known. I think Popp is making a mistake, this is an opportunity to restart on a fresh slate (maybe) with the agents, instead he's going to war.
