Jeff Reinebold leaving the Tiger-Cats

After 7 seasons as Tiger-Cats Special Teams Coach, Jeff Reinebold is leaving. He is an excellent ST coordinator. Probably the best in Tiger-Cats history. Had great players to work with in punt & kick returns.
The kicking was below average in 2021.
Good luck to Jeff in his future endeavors. Wonder who replaces him.


Craig Butler is the likely candidate. Cats like to promote from within the organization and Butler would likely implement and continue Reinebold's strategies.


That didn't take long! :alarm_clock:

Wow . That is surprising indeed . I'm wondering if his decision has anything to do with the possibility of health issues that might need immediate attention and has put football on the backburner for JR ? I'm hoping that's not the case .


Definately a kick in the nads for MTLALS
Archambault is no Reinebold


I just wish the best for him and his family.


You mean you just shuffle the linebackers coach over to replace the ST coach...that easy to replace??


Couldn't pass up a chance to coach with old buddy Glanville again.

Seems like Reinebold is short-changing himself going to an upstart league with only 4 teams. He's been on a weird journey in the last 6 months.


Jeff left the Ticats because he wanted an increased role on the coaching staff but that never happened for him. I can't say why he left Montreal so abruptly but I know it isn't about health, he's in very good health. His new job is a QB and receivers coach so it's probably that he wanted something new that the CFL wasn't giving him.

I wonder if Reinebold is still associated with Sky Sports NFL coverage ?

Jeff Reinbold has always had a sketchy reputation. He's what you call a Paycheck Hunter, nothing more and nothing less!
Too bad Glanville & Reinbold can't bring Maggot Mike Kelly aboard as OC - what a triumvirate that would be!

LOL. Loved that show as a kid. That certainly describes Reinebold.

The Corner Gas version had us on the floor:


JR is an interesting dude. i think he chases the experience more than the paycheque.
Here is a good write up where he drove player John Chicks belongings accross Canada for him.

In January, he bought 104 tickets to the Polynesian Bowl in Hawaii and donated a pair to each of 52 high schools there as part of his Ohana Project, inspired by the “Heart of a Warrior” scholarship he helped establish together with and in honor of his former Hawaii coaching colleague Brian Kajiyama.

Quite the experience I am sure


Needless to say , TiCat fans don't agree with your character assassination .


Most of us loved Jeff Reinebold; always had great kick &punt returners; usually got the FG kicking right; decent punting.
Now most of these areas are average to below average...which is not helping the rest of the team.


I think he's one of those guys who mellowed with age. He was a bit goofy during his tenure with Winnipeg as Head Coach (I remember a Harley Davidson) but was a class act during his time with the Cats.
