The Winnipeg Blue Bombers will have a new Linebackers Coach for the 2016 CFL season following Monday’s hiring of Glen Young. The former Edmonton Eskimo, Montreal Alouette, and Toronto Argonaut linebacker will oversee the likes of Khalil Bass, Sam Hurl, Chris Randle, and Ian Wild- among others.

Young brings a championship attitude to former team mate Mike O’Shea’s coaching staff after playing on two Grey Cup winners for Edmonton during his 8 year CFL career that was preceded by a couple of seasons with the NFL’s San Diego Chargers.
The 46 year old native of Scarborough, Ontario has spent the past 3 seasons as the Associate Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator of the College at Brockport Golden Eagles in Western New York. Not far from where he played during his college career at Syracuse.
Young’s addition will also result in former Linebackers Coach Greg Knox now moving over to his playing position where he will coach the Defensive Backs for the coming season.
