Riders named Craig Dickenson Chief Trainer – 3DownNation

Saskatchewan Roughriders will name Craig Dickenson as Senior Coach by Sources.

The contestants called for a press conference for the official announcement at 3 pm. eastern time on Friday.

Saskatchewan interviewed four candidates for this job, Dickenson, current offensive coordinator Stephen Maccado, Mike Benavides and a mysterious man.

Dickenson is Dave Dickenson's older brother, who has compiled a record of 41-11-2 regular seasons in three seasons, including winning the 2018 Gray Cup as the boss of the Calgary Stampeders.

Dickenson is the coordinator of Riders' special teams for the past three seasons. Under the leadership of Dickenson in 2018, greens and whites linked the franchise record with four spins.

Meanwhile, Canadian kicker Brett Lautner had a resurgent campaign that made 54 out of 60 attempts from three points (90%), including 56 of them, which led to the honor of the West Division stars. The units of the 47-year-old team that returned the league played the league in the total area (3,028), the return of the long profit (13) and the cover teams were strong.

Dickenson spent 16 seasons in the CFL with Riders, Edmonton Eskimos, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Calgary Stampeders and Montreal Alouettes, 13 as a dedicated team coordinator. He has experience with NFL chargers in San Diego and Oakland Raiders.

Dickenson was the first co-ordinator of the special teams since Mike O'Cha in 2014 to move to a senior coach.

Dickenson was a kicker for the University of Montana during his collegial gaming days.
