Clements played 12 seasons in the CFL with Ottawa, Saskatchewan, Hamilton and Winnipeg, and led the Rough Riders to a Grey Cup in 1976, and the Blue Bombers to a championship in 1984. In 1994, he was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.
Good for TC. He was a great player, and he's had a lot of success as a QB coach in the NFL. I'm sure this stint as an OC will work out better for him than his last turn did in Buffalo.
We should start a pool on how long before he gets a HC job in NFL, I'm betting about 3-5 years, depending upon Packers' continued success and getting to and winning Super Bowl
The OC in Green Bay....very very nice gig...congratulations Tom....always enjoyed watching him play QB in the CFL....an opportunity well deserved!!!!!
I agree with you, merlin. He really worked wonders with some QBs in the NFL.... Rodgers in GB is the recent and obvious example, but don't forget he was the only one who got good production out of Kordell Stewart when he was in Pittsburgh. TC's last stint as OC in Buffalo was not successful, but the whole team (coaches and players) was pretty weak. I think this new job will give him a chance to really build up a solid reputation. I hope it works out well for him. I'd love to see him become a head coach.
The others in that mix were, Mike Sherman, Kevin Coyle, and Brad Childress. But out of nowhere, the Bucs hired former Rutgers Coach, Greg Schiano last week. Schiano lasted one pre-season game with the Argos, as a linebacker during training camp many years ago, when he was still playing football !!!
