No matter who the Esks hire as their next head coach, they absolutely must do a thorough and proper candidate search this time.
I don't care why we hired him in the first place, but I do care about his performance in that capacity, and from what I remember it wasn't anything special, which is why he was cut loose.
This team is in no position to hire an unremarkable co-ordinator from another team. Not while LaPolice is available, a coach who took Winnipeg to the Grey Cup two years ago. If it's going to be a co-ordinator, Chris Jones is a much more accomplished candidate, even Dave Dickenson for what he's done with all those QBs in Calgary. (although I don't typically like ex-QBs as coaches) Rick Campbell would be nothing more than a favour to his father.
I wonder if Chris Morris will get any interest? I'd love to have a former O-lineman calling the plays, he would know the value of a run-first offense.
