Edmonton Eskimos linebackers coach Dan Kepley resigned his position on Tuesday, days after watching his team get embarrassed by the Calgary Stampeders by the score of 56-15.
The Canadian Football Hall of Famer was in his tenth year as an assistant coach on the staff, with the last four seasons as linebackers coach.
With the loss, the Eskimos dropped to 1-6 on the season, allowing a league-worst 239 points. Last month, general manager Danny Maciocia was fired after the club won their first game following four straight losses to open the season.
Kepley was an integral member of the Eskimos dynasty teams that won five straight Grey Cup titles. He was a three-time Schenley Award winner as the CFL's top defensive player and honoured on the Eskimos Wall of Fame at Commonwealth Stadium.
