Bob Dyce and Redblacks finalize 2023 coaching staff, make good progress in the off-season

On Wednesday the CFL’s Ottawa Redblacks announced their 2023 coaching staff. It was the first big announcement made by new head coach Bob Dyce, and it doesn’t disappoint.

Dyce is already onto a good start in his new role, having now brought in both Khari Jones (offensive) and Barron Miles (defensive) as coordinators. Other names also brought into the mix include; Travis Moore as a receivers coach, Nate Taylor as a running back coach, offensive line coach Paul Charbonneau, Cory McDiarmid as a special teams coach, defensive line coach and run game coordinator Mike Phair, linebackers coach Patrick Bourgon and defensive backs coach Alex Suber.

A few noticeable changes from the 2022 staff would be the departures of quarterbacks coach Will Arndt and defensive coordinator Mike Benevides, as well the move from receivers coach to defensive backs coach for Alex Suber.

When unveiling the staff Dyce stated, “This is a group that is committed to working together with players both in the meeting rooms and on the field to ensure success. They have won everywhere they have been and we’re fortunate to have them all in Ottawa.” This is just one of the many things the Redblacks have done thus far to be a better team in 2023. They’ve already re-signed a lot of the core pieces to the team, some of the biggest names would be Dino Boyd, Nate Behar, Richie Leone, Lewis Ward, Justin Howell and most recently Kene Onyeka.

With less than two months remaining until free agency opens, be on the lookout for more big news coming from the capital as Bob Dyce and company look to create a championship culture in Ottawa.
