Official: Orlondo Steinauer finalizes Ticats 2020 coaching staff

Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach Orlondo Steinauer has finalized his coaching staff for the 2020 season. 

It includes nine returning coaches from last season and the addition of Mike Gibson as offensive line coach.

Four returning coaches were also elevated to new roles, including Tommy Condell to offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, Jim Barker to offensive and special teams assistant and personnel consultant, Craig Butler to defensive backs coach and special teams assistant and Jarryd Baines to receivers coach.

“We were able to keep continuity while adding a great person with significant experience in Mike Gibson,” Steinauer said. “This group embodies the leadership, work ethic and people skills that align with our organizational culture.”

Gibson, 63, brings 40 years of coaching experience to the Ticats, including 15 seasons at the Canadian Football League level and over two decades at the NCAA Division I level. His tenure as a CFL coach includes a previous two-year stint in Hamilton where he served as assistant head coach and offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2010.

Most recently, he spent four seasons overall with the Edmonton Eskimos (2016-2019), serving as assistant head coach and offensive line coach in 2019 after three years as their offensive line coach and run game coordinator.

Gibson’s other CFL coaching experience includes a season as the Ottawa Redblacks offensive coordinator and offensive line coach in 2014, three seasons with the Calgary Stampeders as running backs coach in 2011 and offensive line coach in 2012 and 2013, two seasons as offensive line coach with the Saskatchewan Roughriders where he was a member of the 2007 Grey Cup champion coaching staff, and three seasons total with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, including two as offensive coordinator in 2005 and 2006 after entering the league as their offensive line coach in 2001.
