HAMILTON -- Hamilton Tiger-Cats Vice President of Football Operations, General Manager and Head Coach Kent Austin made three more additions to his coaching staff today by hiring Dennis McPhee as Defensive Line Coach, Allen Rudolph as Offensive Line Coach and John Zamberlin as Linebackers Coach.
McPhee returns to Hamilton for his third tour of duty with the Ticats after formerly serving as a defensive assistant from 1995-2001 and 2004-06. McPhee's previous Black and Gold stints saw him oversee the linebackers from 1995-97, the defensive line from 1998-2001 and the defensive front from 2004-06.
Under McPhee's watch the Ticats led the CFL in quarterback sacks in 1999, 2000 and 2004 while defensive end Joe Montford was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Defensive Player three times.
In addition to his pro experience, McPhee's coaching pedigree also includes stops as head coach at Waterloo and St. Francis Xavier, as well as defensive coordinator at Western and McMaster.
