CFL mourns the passing of legendary coach Don Matthews.

Although this is an extremely sad time for the entire #CFL community, we can’t help but remember the amazing times “The Don” left us.
On the sidelines, Matthews was a strict field general but off the field when the opportunity was right, ‘The Don’ could let loose like the best of them. In 2005, while coaching with the Montreal Alouettes, Matthews teamed up with a local band called Whimzical who produced a track featuring the legendary coach providing background vocals.
It was based on his pre-game ritual of asking his players “What time is it?”
This is arguably the Greatest CFL Song of All-Time.
Lastly, this was all for a great cause as proceeds from this single went to a charity.
