Corey Chamblin sits courtside at Raptors game with Argos GM Jim Popp


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.
