What happened to Dave Easley? Was he not re-hired, or "another position in the organization"?

He was let go so we could keep Brad Miller by making him ST coord., assistant HC and LB coach.Look for him to pop up in SSK.

Won't be as Special Teams Coach ... they found someone else to take the job.

Easley is a key loss in my opinion ... our Special Teams have improved year over year under his tutelage.

This is a good story about Rick Worman by Drew Edwards


The last time Khari Jones and Rick Worman joined forces, it worked out pretty well.

The year was 2001 and Jones was the quarterback of the Blue Bombers, Worman the club's offensive coordinator. The pair led the Bombers to a 14-4 record, a Grey Cup appearance and garnered Most Outstanding Player nod for Jones in his best-ever season as a pro.

The two will be reunited in Hamilton in 2011, albeit with both their roles and the hierarchy changed. Jones is the club's offensive coordinator, while Worman was named the team's running backs' coach on Tuesday.

Worman's extensive CFL experience – he's spent almost fifteen years as a player and coach – and his relationship with Jones were major factors in head coach Marcel Bellefeuille's decision to bring him aboard.

“I thought it was important that we pair our rookie coordinators with veteran guys they could work with and lean on,? Bellefeuille said. “Rick will give that to Khari.?

Here's a short interview with Worman


I think it's great for Jones, as a first time offensive co-ordinator, to have Worman as a resource with all his experience as an offensive coordinator and his familiarity with Jones too.

I'm also very interested to see if there'll be much affect on Cobb's play.

This could prove to be a very wise and valuable acquisition.
