MONTREAL — The Montreal Alouettes announced on Monday that offensive coordinator Rick Worman has been relieved of his duties.

The news comes just three months after Worman was hired by Alouettes head coach Tom Higgins as the team’s new offensive boss.

A former quarterback with the Edmonton Eskimos, Calgary Stampeders and Saskatchewan Roughriders, Worman returned to the CFL after coaching quarterbacks with the Mississippi Valley State University Delta Devils last season.

In 2012, he served as a scout for the Ottawa REDBLACKS, and was the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ running backs coach before that. He spent seven seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos, working as a West Coast Scout for four years before joining the coaching staff as the quarterbacks coach in 2007 and adding the title of offensive coordinator in 2008.

Prior to joining the Eskimos, Worman spent time as the head coach of the Arena Football League 2’s Fresno Frenzy in 2002 and the offensive coordinator of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2001.

That season, the Bombers led the league in virtually every offensive category en route to a 14-4 record and a Grey Cup appearance.

His coaching career includes three Grey Cup appearances and two Grey Cup championships. He has previously coached former CFL MVP quarterbacks Ricky Ray and Khari Jones.
