Hearing Paul LaPolice is leaning strongly towards staying with TSN, thus rejectling #BCLions offensive co-ordinator offer.
Can you blame him the TSN gig is likely less stress, less hours and more security.
Judging from LaPolice's stints on TSN, he is much happier in his work for them than coaching or even
managing. I think he is very good with his breakdowns of various plays and to me, he has more football
savvy than anyone on the five man panel. I find him both knowledgeable and entertaining.

Look for Khari Jones to get the O/C job in BC now.
