Riders’ Chris Jones considers switching customary black for green shirt

Chris Jones is normally the man in black.

Ever since taking over as Mr. Everything in Saskatchewan Jones has worn black on black. The black shirt is his staple going back to being the head coach in Edmonton.

However, during Sunday’s Riders win over Calgary Jones was wearing a green shirt.

Jones wore the Riders’ Diversity is Strength shirt.

“It’s an important message for our league and our commissioner and the governing body they think very strongly of the diversity program and it stands for something really good and something that I believe in too,” Jones said.

Saskatchewan’s bench boss might be sporting green on a regular basis after the victory over the Stampeders.

“That’s what the players were telling me,” Jones said. I wore the CFL shirt that they give us for the diversity and so now I’ve got to wear it every week.”
