Argos interested in Dinwiddie for offensive coordinator job?
The Argonauts don’t have a head coach yet but there are rumours that they may be looking to poach Ryan Dinwiddie from the Stampeders to take on the role of offensive coordinator. The former Blue Bombers quarterback currently serves as the Quarterbacks Coach under Dave Dickenson in Calgary.
According to Farhan Lalji of TSN, Toronto will interview DeVone Claybrooks and Paul LaPolice this weekend. LaPolice has spent the last number of years running one of the league’s most efficient offences in Winnipeg.
Claybrooks helped steer the Stampeders defensive to top spot in a number of major statistical categories including points allowed and touchdowns surrendered.
To clarify, Claybrooks met with #Argos brass tonight. Formal interview tomorrow (Sat). Lapo to follow. Claybrooks to interview with #BCLions early next week. And yes there is also NFL interest in him. @CFLonTSNhttps://t.co/rHo45jWHif
Hearing that DeVone Claybrooks interviewed with the #Argos today and that Paul Lapolice will be in tomorrow. I think Lapo would be a great fit in Toronto and could get the most out of that QB situation. And I think DC ends up with #BCLions when the dust settles. @CFLonTSN
Will Ticats give Leos, Argos permission to talk to Steinauer?
UPDATE: The Ticats have since confirmed that Stainauer will remain in Hamilton for 2019
One of the most sought-after young coaches is current assistant head coach Orlondo Steinauer. Currently with the Tiger-Cats and formerly the defensive backs coach in Toronto, Steinauer could be lured away from Tigertown.
According to Dan Ralph of The Canadian Press both the Argonauts and Lions are seeking permission to talk to Steinauer but it is unknown whether or not Tiger-Cats CEP Scott Mitchell will grant their wishes. Steinauer currently serves under head coach June Jones and returned to Hamilton after a year with former Lions coach Jeff Tedford at Fresno State in 2017.
Stamps grant Lions, Argos permission to talk to DeVone Claybrooks?
