You would possibly assume Winnipeg head coach Mike O’Shea hit it on the screws when he guess on himself and allowed his contract to run out on the finish of this season, reasonably than negotiate an extension with GM Kyle Walters.

In any case, O’Shea simply guided the Bombers by way of the season-ending harm to beginning QB Matt Nichols and the drug-related suspension of star working again Andrew Harris to a Gray Cup victory over Hamilton, the workforce with the most effective regular-season file. The Bombers gained two playoff video games on the street to get there, and that’s no small feat both.

Previous to kickoff in Calgary, Walters mentioned the 2 had reached a verbal settlement for O’Shea to return. Then the Bombers pulled off an upset and the worth for O’Shea’s continued companies ought to have gone up. In concept. If not, the place is the inducement?

Nevertheless, the Bombers nonetheless need to adjust to the CFL’s soccer operations wage cap, which was set at 2.588 million for each 2019 and 2020. It covers as many as 11 coaches, in addition to 14 different personnel together with common supervisor, assistant GM, scouts and coaching workers.

If O’Shea will get a big wage bump as a “job well done” bonus, any person else on the Winnipeg workers goes to take a success, or refuse that lower, lose his job, and get replaced by any person cheaper. Whereas which may nonetheless seem to be a win for O’Shea, the Bombers are all about stability and consistency. Shedding tenured assistants due to monetary constraints isn’t of their recreation plan.

In accordance with sources, that’s precisely what simply occurred in Calgary, the place 12-year assistant Pete Costanza parted methods with the Stampeders, who have been seeking to trim his receivers coach wage, which was within the very low six figures.

That’s most assuredly what occurred final low season in Edmonton, when former defensive co-ordinator Mike Benevides selected to go away his publish reasonably than settle for a 30% pay lower being proferred by GM Brock Sunderland. It’s believed former participant personnel man Paul Jones was wanting on the similar monetary actuality in Edmonton, and high-tailed it for Saskatchewan as assistant GM. Benevides landed a job as an analyst with TSN.

Although he did a terrific job on the TSN panel, the well-dressed and well-spoken Benevides has made it clear he desires to leap again into a training job. It’s what he does, and does finest. Sources mentioned he has been informed that he’s within the combine. However the place does he match?

There are actually head teaching vacancies in Edmonton, the place Jason Maas was fired on Wednesday; Ottawa the place Rick Campbell stop shortly after main the Redblacks to a dismal Three-15 file; and B.C., the place GM Ed Hervey fired first-year head coach DeVone Claybrooks after a 5-13 debut.

If, as an example, Winnipeg’s sensible offensive co-ordinator Paul LaPolice will get the pinnacle teaching job with both B.C. or Edmonton, may Winnipeg’s quarterbacks coach Buck Pierce step up into LaPolice’s function, or does an out of doors candidate get that job? And, does LaPolice do double obligation as head coach and OC in Edmonton or B.C.? The operations cap makes probably state of affairs, as Khari Jones, who simply signed a three-year deal to remain in Montreal, is doing each these jobs.

Calgary’s quarterbacks coach, Ryan Dinwiddie, has apparently talked to the Argos and can interview in Ottawa. The Stamps’ particular groups co-ordinator, Mark Kilam, has already spoken to the Redblacks.

If Dinwiddie will get a job elsewhere, Stamps’ working backs coach Marc Mueller, the grandson of the late Ron Lancaster, may very well be elevated to OC, if Calgary decides to ease the workload of Dave Dickenson, who’s presently head coach and OC.

Former Edmonton and Montreal head coach Tom Higgins desires a job as a place coach. Corridor of Fame quarterback Damon Allen informed Postmedia final week that he has employed agent Gil Scott to assist discover him a job as an offensive co-ordinator.

Allen lives in Toronto, the place the Argos are apparently able to shake up head coach Corey Chamblin’s workers. It seems Chamblin himself will survive the re-organization, partly as a result of he’s properly paid and the Argos are already on the hook for the wage of former GM Jim Popp, who was fired this season, and former head coach Marc Trestman, who was fired on the finish of 2018.

They are going to get some monetary aid from an operations cap rule that permits a workforce to amortize a fired coach’s wage over 5 years. Every workforce can also be allowed a free go on a termination quantity as soon as each 5 years.
