Don said at his press conference that he left the Als when he developed an anxiety disorder which got so bad that he could no longer take the field. He retired to Oregon and at some point spoke to a doctor there who suggested he try a new medication. He tried it and it worked. A daily pill will allow him to resume his coaching career with the Argos.
He just bought a new house so this offer to join the Argos is not something that has been in the works for very long. He also has a 4 year old child; the man is 69!!
