Blue Bombers defensive coordinator Richie Hall missed Winnipeg’s Week 17 game against Saskatchewan because of a passing in the family.

The 58-year-old San Antonio, Texas native is with his family grieving the loss of his sibling.¬†Hall was hired by Winnipeg in 2015 for the defensive coordinator role. He’s been in the CFL since 1983 as a player with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and transitioned to coaching in 1994 on the Riders staff.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the Hall family.
