Tom Clements has been named Green Bay's offensive coordinator. My memory is a little vague, but I think I saw him twice - once in '79 for the Rough Riders and once for the Bombers in Hamilton at the Hall of Fame game when Jake Gaudaur, Terry Evanshen and Joe Kapp were inducted. I'll have to look up what year that was.

He was himself inducted into the Hall of Fame in '94.

Marc Cohon's contract has been extended for three years. I've got nothing at all against him, but I've never understood why everybody likes him and so many important people didn't like Tom Wright.

Wes Cates is set to become a free agent, and the Riders have decided that they won't try to sign him. The Riders also released Marc Parenteau.

PS - I note that the article says that the Als released Tim Maypray.
