Jerry Glanville confirmed as Ticats DC, Lolley won’t return

Ticats head coach June Jones has confirmed that Jerry Glanville will be the team’s defensive coordinator in 2018.

Phillip Lolley, who served in that role after replacing Jeff Reinebold last season, will not return. He was hired as the linebackers coach before the 2017 season.

The Ticats were 0-6 and ranked last in the CFL in points allowed (39.0 per game), net offence allowed (460 yards) and yards per play (7.5) among others when Lolley took over the defence.

3DownNation first reported Glanville would have a role on the defensive side of the football.

Glanville has been on staff with Jones before at the University of Hawaii and during his time with the Falcons and Oilers. The 76-year-old Glanville attended Ticats training camp as a guest coach last year.
