Could Paul LaPolice be joining the Montreal Alouettes' coaching staff next season?
According to The Montreal Gazette, numerous sources are reporting that the Alouettes have approached LaPolice regarding their offensive co-ordinator position.
The position will be vacated upon the expiration of interim Doug Berry's contract on Dec. 31. Berry has called the plays for the Al's ever since the team fired Dan Hawkins.
The team's actual offensive co-ordinator, Mike Miller, was to serve next season but made a request to have his two-year deal divided into two. His contract also expires at the end of December.
LaPolice, currently working as an in-studio analyst for TSN, admitted that he spoke with the Ottawa Redblacks and Edmonton Eskimos head coaching jobs, but he would not comment on the prospect of serving as the Alouettes' OC.
"I have to see where all those issues are and what everything is and all the information with those pieces, and I can make decisions," LaPolice said.
"I certainly miss coaching," he added. "Television allows me to have options. I can make decisions."
The RedBlacks job remains vacant, while the Eskimos job was filled by Toronto Argonauts defensive co-ordinator Chris Jones on Wednesday.
LaPolice was the head coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 2010 to 2012, compiling a record of 16 wins and 28 losses.
