Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach Orlondo Steinauer has finalized his coaching staff for the 2021 season.

It includes seven returning coaches from 2019 and Mike Gibson who will make his debut as offensive line coach in 2021 after officially joining the staff in February 2020.

“Having a vision and a plan is fine, but that’s all it is without surrounding yourself with great individuals who willingly want to be a part of that plan. I‘m pleased to announce this excellent group of people, who happen to be tremendous teachers and coaches for the 2021 season,” Steinauer said in a statement. 

“Their personalities, competitiveness and strong work ethic will contribute to them doing an amazing job of relating to our players while challenging them daily to be their very best. Continuity is key, and they continually represent what we are establishing culturally. I want to thank the entire staff and their families for choosing to be a part of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.”
