Anthony Calvillo to be new Argos QB coach

Anthony Calvillo will become the new quarterbacks’ coach of the Toronto Argonauts, per sources.

Calvillo played for head coach Marc Trestman in Montreal and coached with general manager Jim Popp. The club just lost offensive coordinator Marcus Brady to the Indianapolis Colts and Tommy Condell is expected to take over as OC.

After a Hall of Fame playing career, Calvillo spent the last three seasons on staff in Montreal in various roles: receivers coach, offensive coordinator and overseeing quarterbacks. When new head coach Mike Sherman announced his staff in January, however, Calvillo wasn’t included.

The 45-year-old played 16 seasons for the Alouettes, winning three Grey Cups and three Most Outstanding Player awards. Calvillo’s final numbers were impressive: 79,816 yards and 455 touchdowns.
