Eskimos head coach Jason Maas to return next season despite missing playoffs

Jason Maas will return for a fourth season as Edmonton Eskimos head coach.

The team made the decision official on Thursday after Maas said on the radio Wednesday night.

Maas’s return was in question after the Eskimos finished the season at 9-9 and missed the playoffs. The disappointing season was compounded by the fact that Edmonton is hosting the Grey Cup this year.

The Eskimos also announced that offensive quality controller Kelly Bates; special teams co-ordinator Dave Jackson; wide receivers coach DJ McCarthy and defensive quality controller Rob Payne will not return in 2019.
