Saskatchewan Guest Coaches - Als Connection

Two of their guest coaches are Richard Kent and Ted White.

Kent was the Special Teams 2010 hire quickly dismissed by Trestman and whose role was given to Bischoff.

And we all know about White`s contribution to Alouette history.

In fairness to the infamous Ted White, being a great player doesn't necessarily mean you're a great coach. Many coaches had mediocre playing careers before finding success in the coaching ranks.

Richard Kent, though? Yeesh. Guy was fired before the season even started by one of the top head coaches in the league (Trestman). Not a guy I'd want guest-coaching my players, but that's just me.

Ted White just does not seem to go away. :cry:

Qui ose écrire les mots Te... 'suis malade!

Sans rire, nous avons Marcus Brady depuis plusieurs années parmi les entraîneurs, et je dois dire que j'ai toujours apprécié son travail. À chaque fois qu'on lui a confié une nouvelle mission, il a bien fait, et on ne peut pas dire que Brady ait été un grand quart. Le gars honni pourrait aussi faire du bon travail à Saskatchewan.

D'autre part, je ne souviens pas si c'est Trestman qui a viré Kent ou si c'est Kent qui a pris la poudre d'escampette, mais après 2 ans de nullités spéciales à la Bischoff, je me demande si c'était la bonne décision?

Quite so
Coaching is as much about people skills
As knowledge of the game
Not at all the same skillset..or mindset
Which is exactly why Calvillo simply won't bow out gracefully

Just switch names and you've expressed my sentiments exactly

I mean...White blew ONE post season
When thrown to the wolves after entering a game COMPLETELY unprepared
Mostly due to AC's chronic and Machiavellian refusal to share the field

Refresh me...how many post seasons did Calvillo blow?

Pretty sure Trestman fired Kent. There wasn't any of the 'coach stepping down for personal reasons, etc.' shpiel you normally get when it's the coach's decision to leave. Whatever it was, it must have been major enough for Trestman to can Kent before training camp had even started. That's a red flag. Trestman isn't someone who makes rash decisions, nor is he a coach with no regard for his assistants' livelihood. If he fired Kent, it must have been for a very good reason.
