Official: Alouettes hire Bob Slowik as defensive coordinator

The Montreal Alouettes have hired Bob Slowik as defensive coordinator.

3DownNation insider Justin Dunk first reported the news on Sunday.

“Bob Slowik epitomizes what a good football coach is all about: passion, attention to details and he cares about his players”, Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman said in a statement. “He has a lot of experience and he already knows our playbook as he’s been studying it during the off season. We say that good people make good coaches, and Bob is both of those.”

The 64-year-old was a guest coach with the Alouettes during the 2018 season.

Slowik coached in the NFL from 1992-2013 entirely on the defensive side of the football. He won a Super Bowl with the Dallas Cowboys in 1992.

Sherman and Slowik worked closely together in Green Bay. The Packers won three straight NFC North Division titles (2002-2004). Slowik served as defensive coordinator in 2004.
