News has just dropped that Richie Hall is no longer believed to be in the running for the Head Coach position with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. (The pertinent quote from the story: "Former Edmonton head coach Richie Hall, who was with the Riders as defensive co-ordinator, is not believed to be in the mix.")
This paves the way for Hall to join the Tiger-Cats as their new Defensive Coordinator. It has been speculated for some time that Greg Marshall will not be brought back, and Hall is the presumed replacement because of his relationship with Tiger-Cat Head Coach Marcel Bellefeuille.
With Bellefeuille, Hall and Jones, the Cats could have the calmest coaching staff in football history. Some fans complain about coaches who don't show emotion, but Marc Trestman is as calm as they come and it hasn't hurt him any.
Nothing is set in stone, but I would be stunned if Hall is not hired as Hamilton's Defensive Coordinator. I'll get a jump start and say, "Welcome to Tigertown, Coach Hall."
