Lions part ways with assistant coaches including Khari Jones

The coaching staff in B.C. has undergone a shakeup, according to TSN’s Farhan Lalji.

Jones had been the team’s offensive coordinator since 2014. Simmons was the special teams coordinator for 2016 and 2017. Bellefeuille spent two seasons at his receivers coach post and Ross three with the defensive line.

B.C. is coming off a disappointing 7-11 season, finishing last in the West Division and are clearly looking for ways to improve. Wally Buono bringing in Ed Hervey as general manager serves as proof.

UPDATE: The Lions have made the changes official & Bellefeuille’s name isn’t among them

“BC Lions GM Ed Hervey and head coach Wally Buono today announced that offensive coordinator Khari Jones, special teams coordinator Marcello Simmons and defensive line coach Robin Ross will not return in 2018.”
