B.C. Lions defensive coordinator Mark Washington has taken himself out of the mix to be the Alouettes next head coach.

Washington played six years for Montreal at defensive back from 1997-2002. After playing five seasons in B.C. he became the Lions’ defensive backs coach in 2008 and was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2014, a position he’s held since.
Back in 2012 Washinton interviewed for the Alouettes head coach role, but it ultimately went to Marc Trestman and the defensive guru won’t be Montreal’s bench boss this time around either.
