Alouettes, Redblacks competing to hire Kevin Glenn as quarterbacks coach

The Montreal Alouettes and Ottawa Redblacks are in competition to hire Kevin Glenn as quarterbacks coach.

Glenn played with Als head coach Khari Jones and been on the same team as LaPolice has coached in the past.

The 40-year-old retired prior to the 2019 season after backing up Mike Reilly with the Edmonton Eskimos in 2018 but he didn’t see any game action.

Glenn’s last season actually playing came in 2017. He started 17 games for the Riders, throwing for 4,038 yards, 25 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Saskatchewan went 10-8 that year earning a playoff spot as the crossover team and came within one third-and-15 Ricky Ray to James Wilder Jr. conversion of going to the Grey Cup.

Glenn has played 18 CFL seasons making 208 career starts. He has been a member of all nine CFL teams suiting up for seven of them. Over his career, Glenn has totalled 52,867 passing yards, 294 touchdowns and 207 interceptions with a 63.2 completion percentage.

After nearly two decades playing in the league, Glenn knows the CFL well and could be a valuable mentor for younger quarterbacks learning the nuances of the Canadian game.
