Edmonton Elks general manager and head coach Chris Jones and assistant general manager Geroy Simon gathered with their peers in Kananaskis, Alberta, where the 2023 CFL winter meetings are taking place at the Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge.
I always liked Geroy. He seems to be a huge team guy - which works well as a GM. It takes everyone pulling in the same direction to be successful on the football field.
As for Jones, the guy just loves coaching football. Not surprised to hear he spent time with a lot of out high school teams this fall. Stopping by and teaching skills to the kids. Not surprised either that he would stop at every school he could on the way home after the season. Reality is he was the guy who built the 2015 Cup Winner while Hervey stood back and took credit for it.
