    Kevin Strasser arrested in Oregon

    The former offensive coordinator for the Edmonton Eskimos has been arrested after a bizarre theft in the United States, CBC News has learned.
    Kevin Strasser, 42, left the team in 2010 and is now a high-school football coach in Oregon City, just south of Portland.
    Police say Strasser is accused of stealing a diamond-encrusted watch from a student, then pawning it.
    The grade 12 student noticed the watch missing near the end of the school year. Later, a friend found the watch in a local pawn shop.

    Tough times for Edmonton fans...

    But I guess it's true.

    Once an Eskimo, always an Eskimo! ;)

    That's unfortunate. Kevin is a good man. I had to opportunity to meet and talk football with him several times during his tenure in Edmonton. Hopefully he can get his life turned around.

    What if he was just cleaning up a locker room at the end of the year. Didn't recognize it and sold it off. Nobody would've minded him sorting the lost and found either would they?

    Benefit of the doubt but it doesn't look good.
