Ticats say Orlondo Steinauer staying with the club next season

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have announced on social media that assistant head coach Orlondo Steinauer will remain with the club in 2019.

The club posted a Tweet late Friday night with the news.

The surprise announcement comes after reports that the B.C. Lions and Toronto Argonauts approached the Tiger-Cats about speaking to Steinauer regarding their vacant head-coaching positions.

Steinauer, 45, was Hamilton’s assistant head coach under June Jones last season. He returned to the Ticats after one season as the defensive co-ordinator at Fresno State University.

Steinauer was Hamilton’s defensive co-ordinator (2013-16) and had emerged as a leading CFL head-coaching candidate. But he headed to Fresno State last season as former CFL coach Jeff Tedford’s defensive co-ordinator.

The Tweet doesn’t specify what role Steinauer will hold with the club and there’s been no additional information provided by the club.
