Edmonton Eskimos head coach and director of football operations Danny Maciocia announced on Tuesday that the club has terminated the contract of offensive coordinator and associate head coach Jacques Chapdelaine and will not renew the contracts of offensive line coach Carl Brennan and special teams coach Scott Squires.
“We fell short of expectations in several areas this past season and we felt it necessary to go in a new direction," said Maciocia. "I want to thank Jacques, Carl and Scott for their commitment and wish them every success in the future.?
The remaining assistant coaches on the staff will be offered contracts for the 2008 season, added Maciocia.
Eskimos president and CEO Rick LeLacheur also announced that Maciocia will continue to serve as both head coach and director of football operations in 2008.
“I believe that continuity gives us the best opportunity for success next season," explained Lelacheur. "There’s no doubt that the past two seasons have been disappointing, but after a thorough review of our football operations department, I’m confident that we have a solid foundation and believe that Coach Maciocia has the ability to get us back on the winning track.?
