Not that it is official by any stretch, but I would like to be the first to launch a thread with this tandem featured in it.
I think the hire does point to this happening if Taaffe is indeed free at the conclusion of his interim hire at OC at Pitt.
From Steve Milton's article today:
"Charlie Taaffe has a job this year, but that doesn't mean he won't become the Tiger-Cats' head coach next season.
In fact, the two-time CFL coach of the year would love to come here to Hamilton.
"Yes, absolutely," Taaffe, on a one-year contract at the University of Pittsburgh, told The Spectator yesterday. " I said when I left Montreal it wasn't because of the league or the country. I enjoyed it, but it was for family reasons. Now, I could do it."
I don't care who the coach is, as long as there is a major upgrade in talent here. There is too much blaming the coaches, it starts with the players. This team is starting to look like a dog chasing its own tale.
Wow. I surely hope that Desjardins is already negotiating with him and that we have him under contract by the end of the week, to start the day his Pitt contract expires. I don't know if this is legal, and it certainly wouldn't be announced right away, but it sounds like it would be awesome.
Posted this on another topic but I can see Taaffe (great coach and motivater) coming to Hamilton..With those two here there will be a sense of urgency and accountablity...Also to show that he was a good coach the offensive coaches he had at the time are now head coaches Maocicia sp? and Berry that makes three teams that run is offence MON, WIN, EDM..good luck and hopefully he comes
