CFL: Khari Jones becomes offensive coordinator and assistant coach in Ottawa


OTTAWA — The Ottawa Redblacks announced on Saturday the hiring of Khari Jones as offensive coordinator.

Jones will also serve as assistant to head coach Bob Dyce, whose interim tag was stripped from his title on Friday.

Before being fired last July, Jones had been the head coach of the Montreal Alouettes for three seasons. He then joined the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a football operations consultant role for the remainder of the campaign.

The 51-year-old Jones guided the Alouettes to the playoffs in 2019 and 2021.

Prior to joining the Alouettes, Jones also worked with the BC Lions and the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Jones is a former quarterback who won the Canadian Football League MVP in 2001 with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
