MONTREAL -- Another day, another coaching shuffle in Montreal.

Monday, the Alouettes named Jeff Garcia the team's quarterbacks coach, while Ryan Dinwiddie has been officially named offensive coordinator.

The team also announced that Erik Campbell has been relieved of his duties with the team and that Turk Schonert has been appointed as receivers coach.

"This decision has been made in the best interest of the football team," declared Alouettes head coach Tom Higgins.

"We would like to thank Erik for his hard work and dedication and we wish him well in his future endeavours. Turk has done a great job since he joined our staff and we look forward to having him work closely with our talented receiving corps."

More to come...

I guess that if you can't hire the right people in the right jobs in the first place you have to keep promoting and demoting and hiring and firing until some combination of people works.

Grey Cup winning Head Coach, Franchise QB, lots of offensive weapons and a defense who gets after the QB. Oh and first place in the East ;) I'm quite content over in Argoland.
