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.
