TORONTO - The Toronto Argonauts have named former CFL all-star Bryan Chiu as their offensive line coach.

Chiu spent his entire 13-year CFL career as a centre with the Montreal Alouettes. He was named a CFL all-star seven times, the league's outstanding lineman in 2002, and helped the Alouettes earn Grey Cup titles in 2002 and 2009.

The Vancouver native retired as a Grey Cup champion before the 2010 season.

"I am very excited that Bryan Chiu was available to join our staff," Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said in a statement. "Bryan is a competitor whose 13 years of playing experience and winning approach will prove invaluable to our offensive line."

Chiu was most recently a member of the Concordia Stingers' coaching staff, serving as offensive line coach and assistant offensive co-ordinator.

"I am thrilled for the opportunity to come to Toronto and work with the entire coaching staff, especially Scott Milanovich and (GM) Jim Barker," Chiu said. "These two men were each, at different times, instrumental in the Grey Cup championship teams I was part of as a player. I want to thank the Argonauts organization for believing in me and I look forward to meeting the players and getting to work."
