Bob Dyce returns to Redblacks as special teams coordinator

The Ottawa Redblacks have brought back Bob Dyce for a fifth season as the team’s special teams coordinator

Dyce, who has elevated Ottawa’s special teams unit to become one of the best in the CFL, has been with Ottawa since the 2016 Grey Cup-winning season. He has been instrumental in the development of record-setting kicker Lewis Ward and all-star punter Richie Leone, with both having been the talk of the league the last two seasons.

“I’ve known and respected Bob for many years. He’s an excellent special teams coordinator, he’s got a good feel for this organization and he’s beloved by his players,” head coach Paul LaPolice said. “We think Bob will continue to play a key role in the success of this team going forward.”

Dyce has had great success in the Canadian Football League over the years. The Winnipeg native won his first Grey Cup while with Saskatchewan in 2013 and became a champion once again with the Redblacks in 2016.

“We worked together in 2003 in Winnipeg, Bob’s first year in the CFL, and we have been friends ever since,” LaPolice said.
