The Montreal Alouettes have hired former CFL pass catcher Robert “Flash” Gordon to be the team’s receivers coach.
Gordon played 13 seasons in the CFL, six with the Bombers. During his time in Winnipeg, Gordon caught passes from current Als head coach and offensive coordinator, Khari Jones. The tandem helped the Blue Bombers reach the 2001 Grey Cup game in Montreal. His most productive season saw Gordon grab 89 balls for 1,395 yards in 2000.
Gordon started his CFL career with the Ottawa Rough Riders in 1991 and also played for the Toronto Argonauts, B.C. Lions, and Edmonton Eskimos. He finished his career with 623 receptions for 9,543 yards.
The 50-year-old coached the Omaha Mammoths in the Fall Experimental Football League in 2014.
