MONTREAL — The Montreal Alouettes made a significant move on Wednesday, relieving head coach Khari Jones of his duties. Alouettes’ general manager Danny Maciocia will step in as the team’s head coach until the end of the season. Longtime CFL defensive coordinator Noel Thorpe has been hired to replace defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach Barron Miles, who was also relieved of his duties.
Agreed. Khari is great coach. They players loved playing for him. The room is lost already I can guarantee you of that. Really stupid move. Khari was being told who to play and start already. You could see it coming. GM and owner just ruined this team!
You clearly don't follow the team. Neither Jones nor Miles has been more than mediocre in this league as coaches. It was Jones's fourth year as OC and third as HC and the team was regressing massively. Maciocia is a temporary replacement until the team can make a proper HC hire in the offseason. And Thorpe will be an improvement at DC.
Can't say it was a big surprise...failure to adjust when the Riders came out with a different game plan in the second half puzzled me last week. I figured after the first Riders drive they would change something up to at least slow them down.
KJ could not adjust at halftime. Has been a problem his whole time here. If we happened to have the answer or our players were just dominating/having great nights, we won. But quite frequently, we had nothing in the third quarter and games got away from us.
