REDBLACKS ANNOUNCE COACHES, ADD DYCE


OTTAWA (CP) - Former Saskatchewan Roughriders interim head coach Bob Dyce was named special teams co-ordinator for the Ottawa Redblacks on Friday.

Dyce served as the Riders' special teams co-ordinator from 2013-15 and took on interim head coaching duties last August after Saskatchewan's 0-9 start to the season. He also has previous coaching experience with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the University of Manitoba.

"Bob Dyce is a very good coach and a man with great character,'' Redblacks head coach Rick Campbell said in a release. "I'm looking forward to working with him and I know the players will as well.''

The Redblacks also announced Friday that six other coaches would be returning next season. Mark Nelson (defensive co-ordinator), Leroy Blugh (defensive line), Ike Charlton (defensive backs), Derek Oswalt (linebackers), Travis Moore (receivers) and Bryan Chiu (offensive line) have all re-signed for the 2016 campaign.

"We had a lot of great players and great coaches last season and I'm glad we we're able to bring back the guys we've announced today for continuity and to keep rolling,'' Campbell said. "Our objective for the coming season is to grow as a team and get better.''

Ottawa was 12-6 last season and won the East Division title.

What an idiot comment ... one team won the division title and went to grey cup other team had three wins. One had a high end defence the other had the league worst. Of course their stats would be better!

You're a total moron who would prefer long term mediocrity to fantastic success. We have set up the foundation for a DYNASTY! Of course a simple minded moron like yourself can't see that, but that's ok, you're not in charge of anything and irrelevant so you can only damage your own reputation with your stupidity.
