"Popp said he would be happy to bring Marcel Desjardins back to the Alouettes. Desjardins, his former assistant G.M., was fired as G.M. of Hamilton on the weekend after one season with the Tiger-Cats.
"I would welcome him back, personally, but it's all about opportunity and what's there," said Popp, who spoke to Desjardins on the telephone on Tuesday.
He said they did not discuss a return to Montreal, but may raise the topic once Desjardins has studied all his options.
Popp said he was puzzled by the Tiger-Cats' move.
"They've done this two or three times in the last few years and now they're doing it again," he said. "Marcel's a great guy and I know he worked hard. It may be best that he's not there and he can get back to an organization where he's more appreciated.""[url=http://www.sportsnet.ca/football/cfl/2007/11/06/levingston_alouettes_east_semifinal/]http://www.sportsnet.ca/football/cfl/20 ... semifinal/[/url]
