Former Riders boss Danny Barrett out as potential Alouettes head coach

Cross another name off the roulette wheel that is theĀ Montreal Alouettes head coaching job.

According to Omar Kelly, the Miami Dolphins beat writer and columnist for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, running backs coach Danny Barrett won’t be the man in Montreal.

The 56-year-old Barrett has plenty of CFL experience both as a player and a coach. He spent 16 years at quarterback with four different teams and was the head coach of the Saskatchewan Roughriders from 2000 to 2006 before spending the better part of a decade with U.S. college teams. The joined the Dolphins in 2016.

For those keeping track, DeVone Claybrooks, Mark Washington, Tommy Condell, Marcel Bellefeuille, Rich Stubler and now Barrett are now out of the running. We think.

    I always felt Danny Barrett deserved a second chance as HC somewhere but he seemed to leave the Riders with a huge chip on his shoulder…

  3. In related news, Drew Edwards, Justin Dunk, and Rod Black have not been listed as out of the running, which means that they are eligible.

  4. Rod Black would be the perfect coach for Montreal…then we could get him off the tv broadcasts

  5. I totally agree with Catmando 100%!!!!!!

    Heres a question! Who is worse at their job – “What say you” or Rod Black?

    i think it is Kerwin Bell

  7. Once in the NFL either as a coach or player most try to stay there for the $$$, benefits and possible retirement if they get 3 years in I believe they are vested in the NFL retirement pension program. Dave Dickenson of the Stamps ,missed it by 3 games – weeks I read some time ago.

  8. John Hodge- Good one- Cheers!
