Riders extending head coach and GM Chris Jones through 2020: reports

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are about to extend head coach and general manager Chris Jones.

Jones’ future with the Riders was the team’s biggest question heading into the off-season as he was headed into the final season of his contract in 2019.

Saskatchewan has improved its win total each year under Jones going from five wins to 10 and 12 in 2018. Jones has led the Riders to the playoffs in back-to-back seasons after the franchise failed to make the post-season since 2014.

NFL teams have done extensive research on Jones and gaining insight into the current Saskatchewan bench boss.
