The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed head coach Craig Dickenson to a three-year contract.

Dickenson originally inked a one-year extension through 2019 while Chris Jones was the general manager and head coach which made the 47-year-old the highest paid special teams coordinator in the CFL.

The Riders added two more years on Dickenson’s deal to match it up with general manager Jeremy O’Day.

O’Day had inked a two-year extension to serve as assistant GM when Jones was still in Regina and after Saskatchewan named him permanent GM the Riders added one year to his agreement.

Both men are lined up with three year pacts through the 2021 season.
