He began his coaching career as special teams co-ordinator with Toronto from 2010-13, helping the Argonauts win a Grey Cup in 2012.

Argonauts in 2010 and served there through 2013 – winning a Grey Cup in 2012 - before being hired by the Blue Bombers.

He was hired as the Blue Bombers' head coach before the 2014 season.
