Dennis McPhee .... No longer a 'Cats coach

Longtime defensive line coach, Dennis McPhee is no longer listed as being on the Tiger-Cats’ coaching staff.

He will/should be sadly missed.

We appreciate the info, but…could you change the title? I thought Deke had passed away when I read it…

It seems that the McPhee Family has been part of the Hamilton football scene since the 1960s with “Johnny Red” at Cathedral, along with his brother . Dennis has continued the family tradition of excellence in coaching .

Good luck in your next assignment, Deke.

So the co ordinator of the worst defense the ticats played against last year comes in to town and fires a ticat fixture who coach Sal repeatedly called the best d line coach in the league.the d better be great this year or this guy is getting roasted

Oh my yes…

My bad … Sorry all !
(title now changed)

Interesting… Marshall Ferguson speculating on radio a couple of minutes ago that McPhee might end up in Halifax- due to coaching background in Maritimes and connection with Tillman.

I don’t think a dead guy can coach…unless he is the PASSING coach 8)

I guess the situation out east is much closer to reality than I realized.

I’m not sure what a D-line coach could hope to do for a year or two (at least) before a team is in place. As GM, Tillman could manage the draft, neg list, scouting staff, etc.

I would not be surprised to see McPhee end up at Mac on Coach Ptaszek’s staff.

Sadly, I see that that John McPhee has passed away . Rest in peace, Coach.

??? I thought we were discussing Denis Mcphee

Well Teddy, I don’t know which part of my comments you didn’t understand. The McPhee Family has just lost an important member . The McPhee coaching tree in Hamilton has lost an important member .

Got it. Sorry.
