Argos offensive coordinator Marcus Brady to leave for NFL job

Toronto is about to lose offensive coordinator Marcus Brady to the NFL, per sources.

Brady is in the process of accepting a position with the Indianapolis Colts.

New Indy head coach Frank Reich was a quarterback at the University of Maryland, the same school where former Argos bench boss and current Jacksonville Jaguars quarterbacks coach Scott Milanovich played. Brady spent eight seasons, from 2009 to 2016, on coaching staffs with Milanovich, first in Montreal and then Toronto. That’s the Colts connection.

After seven seasons as a quarterback in the CFL with Toronto, Hamilton and Montreal, Brady was named the Alouettes receivers coach on Marc Trestman’s staff with the Alouettes in 2009 to begin his coaching career. He was elevated to Als offensive coordinator in 2012 and then took the same job with the Argos in 2013 and has spent the last five seasons in Toronto, winning a Grey Cup with the Argos in 2017.

The Argos may not have to look far for a replacement: Argonauts’ receivers’ coach Tommy Condell was the offensive coordinator for three seasons in Hamilton from 2013 to 2015 before joining Trestman last year. Trestman plays a significant role in offensive game planning as well as calling the plays for the double blue.

It’s the second major departure from Trestman’s Argos staff, in early February 3DownNation reported that defensive coordinator Corey Chamblin was unlikely to return to the club.
