I think it would benefit the CIS and the CFL and young coaches in Canada if the CFL would hire more from the CIS rather than casting about looking for failed and retreaded coaches from the US. I'm not just talking about the HC position but rather all positions.
Coaching staffs just bounce around, There are about 85-95 positions in the CFL coaching ranks and probably 100-110 in the CIS ranks.
If there was a clear pathway for successful CIS position, Coordinators and HC to move into the CFL I think we'd see huge development and stability. Canadians would start to see this as a legit career opportunity. Instead we see 50-60 year old linebacker coaches in the CFL from south of the border just jumping from team to team every year. Have you ever looked at the resumes for most of these guys. Its like a travel guide of the nomads.
