It didn’t take long for Jason Maas to find work once again as he was named the new head coach of the Montreal Alouettes on Friday.
The former CFL quarterback, who captured two grey cups as a player was let go as Saskatchewan Roughriders offensive coordinator last month with Saskatchewan losing nine of their last 11 games in 2022 and missing the playoffs.
It will be his second head coaching gig in the league, having previously been in charge of the Edmonton Elks from 2016-2019 ,compiling a record of 39-33 over that stretch, qualifying for the playoffs in three of those four seasons.
The 47-year-old backed up CFL hall of famer Ricky Ray to a pair of championships with the Elks in 2003 and 05 and won it again as Ray’s QB coach in 2012.
Als GM Danny Maciocia fired former head coach Khari Jones after four games in 2022, taking over as interim boss, leading Montreal to the East Final for the first time since 2014.
