Corey Chamblin and Jim Popp sat courtside at the Toronto Raptors game Monday night, per sources.

The Toronto Argonauts have a vacant head coach job and Chamblin was in the city to interview.

The last time the Argos had vacant positions for head coach and general manager Popp was spotted at a Toronto Maple Leafs game with the chairman of Maple Leafs Sports And Entertainment, Larry Tanenbaum.

Chamblin was the Argos defensive coordinator during the Grey Cup-winning 2017 season, despite signing a two-year contract with the double blue he landed a job with the University of Arkansas as quality control defensive backs coach for 2018.

The 41-year-old coach led the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a Grey Cup triumph on prairie soil in 2013, earning the franchise just its fourth CFL title since being established in 1910. During three-and-a-half seasons as head coach in Riderville, Chamblin posted a 29-34 regular season record while going 3-2 in the playoffs.
