Blue Bombers relieve Offensive Coordinator Gary Crowton of his duties; Marcel Bellefeuille to assume control of offence | Winnipeg Blue Bombers
 
 

Head Coach Tim Burke has announced that Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach Gary Crowton has been relieved of his duties effective immediately.  Marcel Bellefeuille will take over coordinator duties for the remainder of the year.

“No one in our organization is happy with the way we have performed so far this season,” said Burke.  “Our offence has not played up to their standards and we need to make this change in order to give us a chance at remaining in the hunt for the post season.  I wish Gary all the best in his future endeavours.”

Bellefeuille was added to Winnipeg's coaching staff on August 12th after spending last season with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.  He was the Hamilton Tiger-Cats' Head Coach from 2009-2011 and has an extensive background in the CFL, working as a position coach and offensive coordinator with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Montreal Alouettes and Tiger-Cats.
