BOMBERS HIRE O-LINE COACH

WINNIPEG, MB – Winnipeg Blue Bombers Head Coach Mike O’Shea has announced that the club has named Marty Costello as their Offensive Line Coach. Costello joined the team last season, working with Coach Bob Wylie in helping form an offensive line that gave up 2nd fewest sacks in the CFL in 2016.

“Marty showed last season that not only is he ready for this role full-time, but he was a vital part of our offensive line coaching last season,” said O’Shea. “Players respond well to him, he understands the game through and through, and we’re very glad to retain him heading into 2017.”

Previous to joining Winnipeg last season, Costello spent two seasons at UW-Stevens Point as the Run Game Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach. In his first season there, the team put up 114.8 rushing yards per game and was third in the conference with 14 rushing touchdowns.

Before UWSP, Costello coached at Valley City State. He started as Co-Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach, and for his final three seasons he was promoted to Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach. His team at Valley City State won three consecutive conference championships.
