Tiger-Cats DC decides to go
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.”
