• Next week, once the Grey Cup is history, the Blue Bombers will announce that Edmonton assistant coach Mike Kelly is their new head coach.
Kelly, a former assistant coach in Winnipeg, will replace Doug Berry, who was fired recently.
And, in Toronto, the story on head-coaching is still this:
If club president Michael (Pinball) Clemons wishes to return as the Argonauts’ head coach, the job is his. If not, B.C. defensive co-ordinator Mike Benevides would be the top candidate.

I really wonder why Benavides would be high on their list.
BC's defence was better under Dave Ritchie; this was Benavides' first year in the DC position, and while still good, their defence wasn't up to last year's performance.
If you want to hire another defensive coordinator as your head coach (and why Toronto would want to do that, given the Stubler and Etcheverry experiments, is an open question), why is Benavides ahead of Richie Hall or Greg Marshall ??????
I don't bye that Ron that has to be Reason . Both are great coaches and Should make Good Head Coaches.
Something in an interview had cost them a Job. They been up too many Times for head jobs not to get them
