New Coach Down to Two Candidates?

CHML's Rick Zamperin is reporting that the Ticats are down to two for the vacant head coaching position, Calgary offensive co-ordinator (and former CFL quarterback and frequent concussion victim) Dave Dickenson and Winnipeg defensive co-ordinator Tim Burke.

Personally I like former offensive co-ordinators as head coaches as coming up with a good offence is the harder task, at least in my opinion. Plus examples like former Hamilton defensive co-ordinator Greg Marshall flaming out in Saskatchewan this year (although not having Andy Fantuz really hurt the Riders this year). Winnipeg did have an awesome defence, good enough to get to the Grey Cup this year so who really knows. The Cats do need to make a decision though to avoid getting the dregs of the co-ordinators. Former defensive co-ordinator Corey Chamblin was rewarded after a fairly mediocre defence in 2011 with the head coaching job in Regina and I doubt offensive co-ordinator Khari Jones will be back.
