Chris Jones Defensive Coach of the Argo's has just been hired as Head Coach of Edmonton see story below.[url=http://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/cfl/chris-jones-replaces-reed-as-eskimos-head-coach-1.2442049]http://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/cfl/c ... -1.2442049[/url]
Not sure if he's got the right temperament to be a HC. Knowledge, experience and passion won't be problems. However, I'm not sure if he has the temperament to remain cool, calm and collected in the heat of a game. In the Eastern final, his D came up flat and wasn't able to rise to the challenge like it had many times during the season.
Good luck to him though.

Hervey and Jones are both strong, dominating personalities. Should be interesting to see how the two co-exist this season, especially if the Eskimos get off to a long rough start.
I could be wrong, but I'm skeptical about Chris Jones as a head coach. This could well be another George Cortez in Hamilton rerun only twisted so the Eskimos have a great defense but poor offense this season.
