The former UTC standout is leaving his Baylor position to oversee receivers for the Argonauts.
By Ward Gossett
[i]Instead of his usual travel to Huntsville this time of year, Baylor School offensive coordinator Cos DeMatteo is heading north to be receivers coach for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.
In recent years he's been on the coaching staff of the Alabama Vipers arena team. His new job takes him away from the Chattanooga school.
"Baylor is an awesome place to be a part of," said the former University of Tennessee at Chattanooga quarterback and receiver. "I feel like I will always be a part of Baylor."
DeMatteo happened to be at the Senior Bowl, primarily visiting former teammate Richmond Flowers III, when he met some CFL coaches at dinner, including an acquaintance, Chris Jones. A former North Jackson assistant coach, Jones had coached opponents of DeMatteo's Franklin County team and later recruited him for Tennessee Tech.
As is usually the case with football coaches, the conversation drifted to X's and O's, and Jones later called DeMatteo to ask if he'd be interested in interviewing for a job as running backs coach for the CFL's Calgary Stampeders. In the course of the Senior Bowl dinner, DeMatteo had met Jim Barker, who at the time was a vice president with the Stampeders.
While DeMatteo's interview with Calgary coach John Hufnagel didn't lead to a job with the Stampeders, Barker later became Argonauts coach and called DeMatteo and asked him to coach receivers. DeMatteo was skiing on top of a mountain in Deer Valley, Utah, and was dumbfounded.
"He first asked me to interview and then said that he had researched my background and was going to go ahead and offer me the job," DeMatteo recalled.
He said he went into back-pedal mode.
"I had a new baby, we had bought a house and I really liked Baylor. It was overwhelming," DeMatteo related. "I prayed. I went back and forth. I know the CFL is a volatile league and there is no real job security in any coaching position. [/i]
