CALGARY (660 NEWS) — As we wait on news from the Canadian Football League on the upcoming season, Calgary Stampeders head coach Dave Dickenson has named his staff.

“Continuity has been a key element in our success over the years, and I’m very happy to have all these familiar faces as part of our coaching staff,” Dickenson explained in a media release on Tuesday. “A few of the coaches have some different roles, and I’m confident they will thrive with these added responsibilities.

“Like so many people in this country, we miss being on the field this year but we’re looking forward to returning to action in 2021. With this group of coaches, I know we’ll be prepared when circumstances allow us to start playing again.”
