The Lions are expected to add former Riders receivers coach Marcus Howell to their coaching staff, according to TSN’s Farhan Lalji.
I'm expecting #BCLions to round out their coaching staff by adding Marcus Howell as receivers coach & passing game coordinator. Had a very good relationship with new OC Jarious Jackson in Sask. @CFLonTSN @cfl @CFL_News #Riders @TSN1040

Howell was with Saskatchewan for the last two seasons. He spent five seasons in Winnipeg as a coach.
The long-time Canadian pass catcher was originally drafted by the Bombers in the fourth round, 25th overall during the 2000 CFL draft and played 11 seasons in the CFL for the Bombers, Renegades and Stampeders. Howell was a member of the 2008 Calgary team that won the Grey Cup.
