Chamblin leaving Argos
Calvillo spent the last three seasons as part of the Montreal Alouettes coaching staff, fulfilling a number of roles on the offensive side of the ball, including offensive coordinator, receivers coach, and quarterbacks coach. He most recently was Montreal’s quarterbacks coach in 2017. As a player, Calvillo dressed for 329 games across 19 CFL seasons with the Las Vegas Posse, Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and Montreal Alouettes. He won three Grey Cups in Montreal, two of which came back-to-back alongside Argos head coach Marc Trestman and general manager Jim Popp in 2009 and 2010. Calvillo earned CFL All-Star honours five times with Montreal and was named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player on three occasions (2003, 2008, 2009). The league’s all-time leader in almost every major passing category, including passing yards (79,816), passing touchdowns (455), and completions (5,892), became professional football’s all-time leading passer in 2011.

Quick returns to Toronto after previously serving as the team’s linebackers coach in 2010 and 2011. Since his first stint with the team, he has coached linebackers with the Alouettes (2014, 2016-17) and served as the defensive coordinator for Corey Chamblin with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Quick brings 37 years of coaching experience to the Argos staff. Most notably, he operated as the head coach at the University of Chicago (1989-93), St. Norbert College (1994-98), and Concord University (2003-08). In six seasons in the CFL, Quick has coached two CFL All-Stars and five divisional All-Stars. During both stints with the Alouettes, he worked alongside Argos GM Jim Popp.

Marcus Brady, the Argos offensive coordinator for the last five seasons, was hired as the assistant quarterbacks coach with the Indianapolis Colts in February. Corey Chamblin has taken a leave of absence from the team.
