Alouettes call press conference for 11 a.m. Wednesday

The Montreal Alouettes have called a press conference for 11 a.m. on Wednesday for what the team is calling “an important announcement.”

With the team currently without a head coach – and plenty of speculation as to the candidates involved – this could signal that general manager Kavis Reed finally has somebody under contract.

Will the name leak out before tomorrow? Giving the league’s insiders just under 21 hours to break a story is a bit like waving a red flag in front a china shop.

Or something like that.

  1. NEWS ALERT: Kavis Reed’s ass FIRED out the door as GM of Montreal Alouettes!

  2. Reed saved up to 15% on his car insurance.

  3. The first GM trade in CFL history. Jones goes to Montreal, Reed to Saskatchewan.

    • Man that is a stupid comment. Pick Kavis Reed to go anywhere but SK. Are you that stupid that you’ve forgotten Kavis Reed was in charge of special teams in SK during the 13th man incident at Grey Cup 2009. Do you think anyone would let Kavis Reed anywhere near the community owned SK Rouggriders.

    • Yep. Reynolds is rumoured to have asked Reed to add HC, DC and SC to his GM duties.

    I can see the presser now: “The Montreal Alouettes are pleased to announce that somebody has finally, reluctantly, agreed to be our new head coach …”

  6. Wow…wasn’t this harsh when Popp was around and the ship was sinking…but Kavis in position less than a yr and ALS fans will kindly blame the Black guy for EVERYTHING! Hahaha…par for the course in this league!

    • Popp has built up some goodwill when he helped make the franchise into a perennial power before the wheels came off.

      Reed came into a bad situation and immediately made it ten times worse.

      I don’t know how you can expect a similar reaction for the two men. And the fact of the matter is, there was some speculation that Popp had lost his touch when the franchise started working itself down the standings, criticism that he mishandled the quarterback transition plan and statements to the effect that he had no place being the head coach as well. Do you not remember any of that?

    • Jeremiah was a bullfrog. // December 19, 2017 at 6:43 pm //

      Come on man no one played the race card regarding Kavis Reeds poor decisions. The fact is the dude has had huge disappointment and massive failure in his career. 13th Man; worst defence in the league in Winnipeg as the DC. 4-14 x 2 as a head coach in Edmonton. Don’t try and pull a race card to try and get Kavis out from under his blunder. He is being judged like every other man that holds the title of GM in the league.

      • Jerimiah you forgot 11 and 7 his first year and 7 and 11 with 5 games lost by a heartbreaking point or two in his second season. Not to mention the Ricky Ray trade, where his QB was traded before his 4-14 season.
        He didn’t have the worst D in the league in WPG check your facts and the 13th man he stood up and took responsibility for so a players career would not get ruined.
        I agree with you about one thing, Reed would never pull the race card, so nobody else should.

    • Don’t think it is because he is black but he sure has got stuck holding the Popp’s baggage.

  7. 3rd and 1, are you really that gullible? Why would you even reply to Bernie’s comment? Come on man

  8. What idiot would want to work under that idiot? Its mind boggling that he actually finally might of found someone

  9. My darkhorse pick is Kent Austin.

  10. Sources Say // December 19, 2017 at 4:50 pm //

    How do you say ‘consequences’ in French?

  11. My guess is Khari Jones who was just released by BC to pursue “other employment”
    Or Jamie Elizondo who left Ottawa a couple of weeks ago.

  12. BigRedMachine // December 19, 2017 at 5:11 pm //

    My guess is that after an exhaustive search it was deemed that Reed will retain the HCing role…

  13. How do you say “what say you” in french?
    What an embarrassment to the CFL this once proud franchise has become

    • Hey oilyguy I have some words for you in French none I can print on here. This garbage you are writing has nothing to do with anything. Best of luck to the Alouettes.

  14. It will be a 2 for 1 ticket blitz

  15. Fred, Jamie Elizondo has not left Ottawa, unfortunately.

  16. greenenvy? // December 19, 2017 at 6:15 pm //

    Must be Kerry Joseph. The only guy in the running (maybe, perhaps, rumour has it) who hasn’t officially withdrawn or eliminated yet………………or someone who has some actual coaching background.

  17. Maybe still a long shot for Marcel Bellefieul?

  18. We don’t want K Reed in sask, the trade is off.
    Because KR cant count (remember)

    This is the last major move by Kavis Reed. The next major move the. Alouettes make is busting Kavis down to water boy.
    Even though Kavis will be seriously demoted. Kavis will be forensic in his science to get the best H2O. Kavis will eventually change his name and become Bobby Boucher the CFL.

  20. Whoever gets the HC job with the Als best of luck to them. Hope the new HC proves all the negative people WRONG in taking this job with Reed as the GM. The only way BOTH of them will prove the naysayers WRONG is WIN BABY WIN as the late Al Davis of the Oakland Raiders would say.

    It will be the Glen Constantine – it will be the perfect fit – he speaks freanch, he can cheat like hell and now pay the players legally! perfecto! and ofcourse Kavis got he job – The Al’s owed him for winning the 97th Grey Cup for 13 mens~! He prob finally got his grey cup ring too! oh Kavis! his apppointments is the best ever!
