Redblacks hire legendary OL coach Bob Wylie

The Ottawa Redblacks have hired Bob Wylie as offensive line coach.

Wylie, arrives in Ottawa with decades of experience at the college and professional football levels in the U.S. and Canada. He has worked for six NCAA Division I schools, two CFL teams and eight NFL organizations. Most recently, the Rhode Island native was the offensive line coach for the Cleveland Browns in 2017-2018 after serving in the same role with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 2014-2016.

Redblacks head coach Paul LaPolice believes Wylie is a very important addition to the coaching staff.

“This will be the third time that we have the opportunity to work together, so he already knows what we want to do to protect our quarterbacks and how we will run the ball,” LaPolice said.

“He’s an unbelievable teacher of men and he will create a great atmosphere in the offensive line room.  Our players will love the experience of working with coach Wylie.”
