Ed the Sock fired Devone Claybrooks as HC of the BC Lions. 5-13 will do that for yee - unless your name is Michael O'Shea and you're a certified mountain man. Now with Porky Campbell relieved of duties in Ottawa the chess game begins. I can see Campbell immediately applying for work in BC - #1 as head coach but also as a defensive coordinator if it comes down to just finding work. Ottawa - has several candidates in the hopper. #1 just might be Paul "PLOP" LaPolice, the embattled OC in Winnipeg who the bombers forbid from talking to the RedBlacks last season. Now what PLOP? Also in play, the ferocious sewer rat Mike Benevides. Outside chance for Matt Dunigan. Claybrooks should return to assistant coaching - he'd be an excellent replacement for Old Richie Hall in Winnipeg who's obviously at the end of his rope. Another outside shot for Ottawa is mid 60s Wally Buono (68 actually) who would be a big name find and if given some decent assistants could coordinate a nice RB coaching staff. Mike O'Shea might be pulled out of Winnipeg (no contract for 2020) and replace Champ Chamblin in Toronto. If O'Shea is pulled early - the Wpg. job could be offered to Plop LaPolice. If not, Plop heads elsewhere. Winnipeg would never hire a black man for head coach, as Wad Miller appears to be a full flamed racist (as is Winnipeg board of directors) nor would they hire Old Pasquale (Buono). He's too old for selling season tickets. Jason Maas might spring loose if Edmonton gets schmiced by Montreal this weekend. He'd be serviceable in Winnipeg, perhaps Toronto - can't see a hothead like Maas in BC though. Couple quality assistants might be in contention for HC jobs, including that longhair special teams coach in Calgary. Buck Pierce not one of those guys. Don't think Pierce could handle coaching pressure. Campbell might be a quality find for Winnipeg but his bland style is not much different than Mike O'Shea other than the fact Porky has a Grey Cup ring - something O'Shea will never possess.
