Offensive coordinator Jaime Elizondo is leaving the Ottawa Redblacks and the team does not appear to be taking it well.

The Redblacks issued a terse, one-sentence, extremely salty release after 3Down’s Justin Dunk broke the news of Elizondo’s departure. Check this out:

The Redblacks are undoubtedly peeved at the timing of Elizondo’s decision, given that training camp is about six weeks away. But, then again, not allowing him to interview for a head coaching job this winter may have just come back to bite them in the ass.

Either way, sending out a bitter one-liner on a guy that helped you win a Grey Cup a couple of years ago is not a particularly good look for a franchise that prides itself in its professionalism and family-friendly vibe. Elizondo deserved better.
