Argos have set Feb. 1 as a deadline for hiring a new head coach,
a date that allows them to pursue...from both sides of the border.
Such a late date would also seem to have its drawbacks.
i.e. the Argos have had to tell..their coaching staff
that they are free to pursue other jobs for 2009.
The Argos met with former New York Giants
head coach Jim Fassell on Wednesday in Detroit.
Apparently, Toronto has recently met with
Saskatchewan Roughriders defensive co-ordinator Richie Hall
and Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive co-ordinator Greg Marshall.
Other candidates expected to draw serious consideration are
University of Buffalo quarterbacks coach Danny Barrett
and recently retired former CFL Head coach Dave Ritchie.
Several sources say the Argos have an interest in
Green Bay Packers quarterback coach Tom Clements,
who played in the CFL with Ottawa and Winnipeg.
