At the top of Adam Rita's off-season to-do list is once again ending his coaching career.

The Argos general manager handled much of the offensive co-ordinator duties this season after Kent Austin was fired in early August. But he has no desire to make it permanent.

Rita admitted yesterday that Steve Buratto, recently fired from the Calgary Stampeders, is at the top of his list along with Argos offensive assistant Paul Lapolice.

"(Buratto) did a lot with what he had in Calgary," Rita said. "We would like to have a guy with some experience and a guy that can move the football."

Buratto was let go by the Stamps after their West Division semi-final loss to Saskatchewan and has worked with Rita in the past.
