MONTREAL -- Offensive line coach Pat Meyer is the new offensive co-ordinator of the Montreal Alouettes.

The CFL club announced Wednesday that Meyer will be offensive co-ordinator while retaining responsibility of coaching one of the league's best front fives.

He replaced Marcus Brady, who left to become offensive co-ordinator of the Toronto Argonauts.

Meyer was offensive co-ordinator for two seasons at Colorado State before joining the Alouettes this season.

"His previous experience as an offensive co-ordinator as well as his knowledge of our players and this league will be great assets," head coach Marc Trestman said in a statement. "Our players appreciate working with him, which made the decision that much easier."

Trestman and Meyer previously worked together at North Carolina State.
