REGINA — The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced Tuesday that Offensive Coordinator Jason Maas has been relieved of his duties. Run Game Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach Stephen Sorrells and Receivers Coach Travis Moore will not have their contracts renewed.
Based on the decisions Dickenson made on the field, the way team motivation level was, the way def/offensive was handled, team discipline was handled, improvement of the team each week..... and I can list another 100:
He should not lead SSK anymore. He got Sankey from CGY last year to boost defence, Bo this year to boost offense? The decision will not bring any spark to SKK .
Based on the article it looks like most of the people let go, their contracts were up. The ones that are still there, still have one more season on their contract. With the operations Cap, I think they are changing as much as they can.
Under the CAP as I know it, you get one freebie - that’s Maas. The others aren’t under contract come 2023. So there really is no penalty letting him go.
“Jeremy is a lifelong Roughrider, who cares deeply about the success of the organization…" Is that a qualification for the position?
Zack Evans left Ottawa as an All-Star to go home & bombed. Brett Boyko left BC with a stat line giving up the most pressures in the league, but came home to Regina & surprisingly (???) that didn’t work out well. Evan Johnson left Ottawa as a highly sought FA & how is the homecoming going? So keeping someone on who deeply cares for his roots is great & I hope it works out. But it isn’t always so. Hey, don’t like to see people let go so all the best.
Everyone knew changes were coming to the Rider Organization. Well at least Craig isn't being axed for the disaster the Riders had this year. I think he is still a good HC & ST coach. It was his subordinate coaches that were not doing so well.
There is still a lot of rebuilding to do for this team but that is for next calendar year.
I’ve been a Rider season ticket for several years - but 2022 was the worst demonstration I’ve seen of gross mismanagement, egregiously deplorable leadership, and a wholesale imploding of culture. And this from someone who witnessed the shambles of 1979 and 1980, the incompetence of 1999, and the ineptitude of 2015. Coach Dickenson summarily failed the team.
Can’t agree with you more, Dickenson is totally responsible for the collapse. He shows his lack of class and character by throwing Cody under the bus blaming him for his ineptitude at coaching. His failure to reign in the renegades and collapse of discipline falls squarely on Dickenson. Bad move Riders!
Totally disagree with you, Craig is a total disaster as a head coach. He should take coaching instructions from brother Dave who knows how and when to crack the whip. I wonder if Craig even knows what is the shape of a football?
