National Post (National Edition) - - POST SPORTS -

Mike Bene­v­ides is the lat­est ca­su­alty of the new CFL non-player op­er­a­tions cap. The Ed­mon­ton Eski­mos an­nounced Fri­day that Bene­v­ides, pic­tured, will not be re­turn­ing to Ja­son Maas’s coach­ing staff for the 2019 sea­son. Bene­v­ides had been the team’s as­sis­tant head coach and de­fen­sive co-or­di­na­tor since Maas took over as Eski­mos head coach in 2016. Prior to join­ing the Eski­mos, Bene­v­ides spent three sea­sons as head coach of the B.C. Lions (2012-14). The cap, set at just un­der $2.59 mil­lion for the next two sea­sons, has al­ready had a marked ef­fect on the league. The Saskatchewan Roughrid­ers an­nounced Wed­nes­day that the team and as­sis­tant vice pres­i­dent of foot­ball op­er­a­tions and player per­son­nel John Mur­phy were part­ing ways. Mean­while, long­time coach Jerry Glanville is leav­ing his post as de­fen­sive co-or­di­na­tor for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The Ti­cats an­nounced that the 77-year-old Glanville will not re­turn for a sec­ond sea­son be­cause of per­sonal rea­sons. Glanville helped guide the Ti­cats to the East fi­nal af­ter the team fin­ished 8-10 dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son.
