Defensive guru Rich Stubler in Toronto helping Argos with free agency

Long-time Canadian Football League defensive coach Rich Stubler is in Toronto to lend his expertise to the Argos as the Double Blue navigate free agency, per sources.

The Argonauts entered the free agency period without a general manager or head coach in place. Young, up-and-coming assistant general manager Spencer Zimmerman with full autonomy to make the appropriate decisions.

The 67-year-old Stubler got his first coaching job in the CFL in 1983. He’s under contract with Toronto as the Argos’ defensive coordinator for the 2017 season, but that could change when the new regime is hired.

    Stubler has my confidence. For those that were not aware or have forgotten. Rich Stubler has been offered HC jobs over the years multiple times. He stated he always turned them down because he wanted full control, and the situation that he wanted just never came up….

    UNTIL the Argos made him the offer, and again he said he would take it if he had full control as to who would play and when (I paraphrase but that was the gist of it) and the Argos made that promise to him.

    The Argos crapped on him under that ownership 2008, He believed he was going into 2008 with Michael Bishop as his QB, that was supposed to be the deal, but they went out and got Kerry Joseph, and when Stubler did not want to play him, basically refused to play him because he wanted Bishop to be the starter, as did the entire team, or the overwhelming number of them did as they spoke up.

    Stubler would not play Joseph so they traded Bishop away and made him play Joseph, the season was a disaster and Stubler never even made it half way through the season, they totally crapped on him and fired him, was very disgraceful

    Joseph was a bust the whole time he was there, once Joseph left he spoke up, stated it was Bishop`s team and never really got past that

    Stubler would make a great HC, he still has not really had the opportunity

  2. New GM & HC will probably fire Stubler when they are hired. This always seems to happen. “Thanks for helping out Rich but…” LOL!
