EDMONTON -- Matt Dunigan is not returning to the Edmonton Eskimos.
Contrary to rumblings coming from the website esksfans.com, Eskimos brass has not interviewed Dunigan for a possible job in coaching or in management.
While the Esks are expected to announce the addition of at least one more member of their 2008 coaching staff in the next two weeks, a highly-placed source has told Sun Media Dunigan is not rejoining the Green and Gold.
The former star quarterback and current TSN football analyst was with the Eskimos for five seasons (1983-87).
A firm date hasn't been set, but the 2008 CFL schedule could be released in the next 10 days.
With only one broadcast network -- TSN -- carrying games this summer and fall, putting together a schedule is a bit less complicated.
