Kahlil Carter steps down as Alouettes’ defensive coordinator for ‘personal reasons’

Montreal Alouettes defensive coordinator Kahlil Carter is stepping down for personal reasons, the team announced Thursday morning.

Carter will be replaced by long-time CFL coordinator Rich Stubler, who was previously a “special advisor” with the club. Carter will also remain with the Als as a scout.

“I took this difficult decision because, at this point, the most important thing for me is to be able to spend more time with my family”, said Carter in a statement released by the Alouettes. “I’m happy to remain a part of the Alouettes as a scout, a position that will give me more flexibility in terms of time management.”

Carter joined the Alouettes this winter after three years as the defensive backs coach in Calgary,

“We understand Kahlil’s situation. We offered him an alternative position in our organization to accommodate him, and we’re glad that this allows him to remain with the team”, head coach Mike Sherman said.
