Found this on Sportsnet site from Perry Lefko. He did a team by team analysis. Here's what he says about Hamilton.
HAMILTON: Both of the team's co-ordinators -- Mike Gibson on offence and Greg Marshall on defence -- are rumoured to be on their way out. The offence struggled, while the defence had its problems, too, and we're told head coach Marcel Bellefeuille became more involved in that area, which didn't sit well with Marshall. Could Rita be coming to Hamilton as the OC? Makes a lot of sense.
As for the defensive co-ordinator, we're told Richie Hall is a longtime friend of Bellefeuille and loves the Hamilton area and the job is his if he wants it.
Not sure how I feel about Rita as our OC, but do like the idea of Hall as the DC.
Maybe things related to why this team underperformed are starting to become clear. Bellefeuille getting involved in Marshall's defence! Wow. I think they'd have done much better if Marshall had helped Bellefeuille help Gibson.
Hall -- A decent choice if Marshall is lost.
Rita -- No! No!! No!!!
Went looking to read the full article moscamania quoted from, and found it contains a few more interesting rumours. Worth the read and maybe holding on to for a re-read in the spring to see how many of the "rumours", come true. Here it is:
I can certainly see Greg Marshall back in Winnipeg, especially if Kavis Reed leaves. That would be too bad but if the rumours are true that he and Marcel are clashing, something has to change.
Adam Rita and Richie Hall? I dunno. Adam Rita had just about all of his coaching success in 1991.I would like to see some young up-and-comers given a shot. They generally relate to the players better. Richie Hall as DC would be be OK though.
And re: Montreal....if Marc Trestman heads for the the U of Minnesota, my guess is that Scott Milanovitch will replace him.
Cap'n: He was hired by Saskatchewan in 1994 to coach the defensive backfield and was later promoted to defensive co-ordinator.
I don't think he was ever an offensive co-ordinator at the pro level.
Cap'n: Not sure what's going on here...I posted my response to your Richie Hall question and it ended up being posted before your post. Then it was re-posted after your post. It happened yesterday too.
I contacted the mods about it this morning.
But ..to answer your question.....according to Wikipedia....while Adam Rita was OC in BC under Don Matthews the team did well for a few seasons.
I say just setup the latest version of Madden on the sidelines, and just ask Madden for every play. Sure it's a different league, and it might seem odd that we'd never punt, but extra man means the plays would be even better!
Although seriously, how about taking the best of both worlds, Marshall as DC and Hall as OC.
