Hamilton has interviewed Calgary DB coach Cory Chamblin for its vacant DC job.

Don't know if it's wise for the Cats to hire Chamblin. You already have one coordinator who is brand new to the position and without a ton of coaching experience (Khari Jones). I don't think it would be great to have two newly minted coordinators. Then again, there aren't many proven options at this point, so what do I know? :lol:

I tend to agree however, I believe the weak link in our D was our DB's.

Agreed there. The line was pretty good, the linebackers were outstanding; the problem was in the secondary.

Now, were the problems with the secondary because of the schemes or the personnel, or a bit of both?

Can't disagree with that, but if he is the reason why CGY Dbs are such interfering clowns I'll pass.

This coach's stock has risen quite a bit lately. He must be a good one.

According to Arash Madani on twitter, Corey Chamblin will be the new DC for the Cats.

Heres another story on the subject.

8) Rick Zamperin confirmed this morning that Chamblin is indeed the Cats new DC.

So does that mean we’ll be signing Browner and Anderson now?If so, nix on Browner he’s the biggest cheater in the game.

Maybe Marcel made a shrewd signing by bringing in Cory Chamblin

if he is able to influence those two great free agents d-backs
to re-connect with their old d-back coach in Hamilton, eh 15?

That is never a good motivation. I doubt it was Marcel's.

Players like Anderson are uncoachable no matter who's there but rumours suggest Chamblin was one of the few on CAL's coaching staff players listened to.

The fact other GMs were coveting him says something aswell.

Plus, we beat out WPG which is always nice and who will they get stuck with ?

They have an iffy coaching staff to begin with.

Anderson is great player in the Right system

People are too hard on him and Feel great Addtion to our team

COREY CHAMBLIN
Defensive Backs Coach
CFL: 4th season
Stamps: 3rd season

In both of his seasons with the Stampeders, Chamblin has been part of a defensive staff that has helped Calgary be the West Division’s stingiest team.

Despite starting the season with two rookie halfbacks, the Stampeders secondary improved over the course of the season and played a large part in limiting Ricky Ray to 162 passing yards in the Stamps’ West Division semifinal win over Edmonton. Two members of the Calgary secondary — Dwight Anderson and Brandon Browner — were division all-stars in 2009 while Browner was a CFL all-star for the second consecutive season.

In his first season with the Stamps, Chamblin worked with a young, relatively inexperienced group of defensive backs that featured few returning players from 2007 and was a work in progress throughout the season. They gelled down the stretch and held BC to less than 300 yards passing in the West Final before holding the league’s Most Outstanding Player Anthony Calvillo without a touchdown pass in the Grey Cup.

Prior to joining the Stamps, Chamblin coached defensive backs for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2007. Winnipeg had the second-best pass defence in the CFL (254.7 yards per game) despite a continuous run of injuries in the secondary. His unit held CFL Most Outstanding Player Kerry Joseph to just 181 passing yards (13 completions in 34 attempts) in a 23-19 Grey Cup loss.

Before coaching in the CFL, Chamblin was a defensive assistant/secondary coach for the Frankfurt Galaxy of NFL Europe in 2006. The Galaxy won the World Bowl that season and his squad had the league’s second-best pass defence. Chamblin also did a coaching internship with the NFL’s Washington Redskins in 2006.

He was an assistant coach at Cumberland University in Tennessee in 2005 and his special teams were among the best in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. He also spent time as the assistant strength coach at Tennessee Tech University.

Prior to becoming a coach, Chamblin spent time with six NFL teams: Baltimore Ravens (1999), Jacksonville Jaguars (1999-2000), Green Bay Packers (2001), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2002), Denver Broncos (2003) and Indianapolis Colts (2004). He played in NFL Europe with the Rhein Fire in 2004.

Browner is better than anyone here now. Obviously worth persuing.

Anderson can stay where he is in his own whack-job world, thanks.

I'd rather have Browner, Anderson is an idiot.

Having Browner and Hinds on the corners would be great.

Anderson would great half for us with Tisdale on other Half

Jerome Dennis was our consistent player in the secondary last season. I'd be completely satisfied with him and Tisdale at the Halves.

Rumour has it WPG cheaped-out and would offer only a smaller two year deal to Chamblin.

Some Bummer fan grumbling but it seems WPG's GM , Joe Mack, is still super awesome and the honeymoon with him goes on.
