The B.C. Lions have announced that several members of their 2018 coaching staff – including long-time offensive line coach Dan Dorazio – won’t be returning next season under new head coach DeVone Claybrooks.

Also not being offered contracts for 2019: defensive coordinator Mark Washington, special teams coordinator Jeff Reinebold linebackers coach Chris Tormey, defensive line coach Randy Melvin, assistant defensive backs coach Stanley Franks and running backs coach Mike Lionello.

Dorazio spent 15 years with the Lions and has 21 seasons under his belt in the CFL.

Claybrooks, who was announced as the team’s head coach this week, is expected to bring in Rich Stubler to fill the defensive coordinator role.

The team also said that offensive coordinator Jarious Jackson and receivers coach Markus Howell will return next season.
