The Toronto Argonauts asked for and received permission to interview Calgary Stampeders quarterbacks coach Ryan Dinwiddie for the Argos offensive coordinator job.
Dinwiddie has spent the last three seasons working closely with Stamps star Bo Levi Mitchell and head coach Dave Dickenson. The 38-year-old earned his first coaching job with the Montreal Alouettes in when current Argos general manager Jim Popp held the same position in La Belle Province. He held quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator titles while in Montreal.
Dinwiddie played five seasons as a quarterback in the CFL, three with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and two for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Dinwiddie was a star at Boise State University throwing for 4,356 yards, 31 touchdowns against five interceptions as a senior leading the Broncos to a 13-1 record in 2003.
Dinwiddie spent the 2004 and 2005 NFL seasons with the Chicago Bears.
Around the CFL, Dinwiddie is viewed as a rising young offensive mind.
