Jones Is The Chosen One

Rider LogoSo TSN is reporting that the Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed former Edmonton head coach Chris Jones to be the team’s GM and head coach.

Jones is coming off a Grey Cup win with Edmonton, and is supposedly a no-nonsense type of guy with a bit of an acerbic streak and a knack for constructing solid defences.

Jones wouldn’t have come cheap. The salary being touted in media reports was $600,000. But with his signing, the rebuild for 2016 has officially started. Should be interesting.
