There has been another name added to the B.C. Lions’ search for an offensive coordinator: Jordan Maksymic.

Maksymic spent three seasons as the quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator while current Lions QB Mike Reilly was in Edmonton. He was elevated to offensive coordinator for the 2019 season.

The native of St. Albert, Alberta knows B.C. head coach Rick Campbell from being on the Esks staff together in 2011 while Maksymic was the video coordinator. Campbell hired Maksymic as an offensive assistant and running backs coach with the Ottawa Redblacks.

Ties to both Reilly and Campbell could see Maksymic end up on the West coast.
