HAMILTON — Long­time foot­ball coach Jerry Glanville is leav­ing his post as de­fen­sive co-or­di­na­tor for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The Ti­cats an­nounced Fri­day that the 77-year-old will not re­turn for a sec­ond sea­son be­cause of per­sonal rea­sons.

Af­ter be­ing pro­moted to head coach this week, Or­londo Stein­auer said he wanted Glanville to re­turn. Now, how­ever, the

CFL team is look­ing for a de­fen­sive co-or­di­na­tor.

Glanville — work­ing un­der for­mer head coach June Jones, who stepped into the of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor role this week to al­low Stein­auer to step up — helped guide the Ti­cats to the East fi­nal this year af­ter the team fin­ished 8-10 dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son.

“I hate that I won’t be able to come back to Hamilton next sea­son to fin­ish what we started in 2018,” said Glanville, whose coach­ing ca­reer started at West­ern Ken­tucky Univer­sity in 1967 and in­cludes head and as­sis­tant roles in the NFL and U.S. col­lege.

“The fu­ture is bright be­cause there are so many good peo­ple and great play­ers through­out the or­ga­ni­za­tion. I will be a Tiger-Cat for life.”
