Austin leaves Roughriders for Ole Miss
CBC News
The Saskatchewan Roughriders will be defending their Grey Cup title without coach Kent Austin.

The 44-year-old announced Wednesday he is leaving to become offensive co-ordinator at Ole Miss, his alma mater.

“I struggled with this one pretty big time,” Austin said at the news conference. “Having won the Grey Cup didn’t make the decision any easier.

“I have a great love and affection for my university and it’s not just the university, it’s the people that I’ll be working with.”

  1. Yep. This sucks. Not sure how we’re gonna go on without him. Maybe you should coach Darryl? Take a year off. The diocese won’t mind! Anyway, I don’t wan’t to see CBC for the full article, but thank you. :(
