According to the Free Press (http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/sports ... 60412.html), the following are the head coaching candidates on the short list:
George Cortez (offensive coordinator in Calgary);
Chris Jones (defensive coordinator in Calgary);
Greg Marshall (defensive coordinator in Hamilton);
Tim Burke (defensive coordinator in Monreal).
At first glance, I think I'd prefer George Cortez. I think we can all agree that the Bombers' defence was pretty solid last season, whereas the offence was abysmal. Such being the case I'd lean to a head coach with an offensive background, and that's only Cortez from that list.
That said, if they hire a qualified offensive coordinator, then the head coach's background becomes less important and would open the door to one of the others listed.
