Andy Bischoff

Special Teams Coordinator, Running Backs Coach
Administrative Assistant to the Head Coach

 

2012 - Bischoff is in his fifth season with the Alouettes working as the running backs coach, the assistant to the Head Coach Marc Trestman and enters his third year as Special Teams Coordinator. Under Bischoff’s guidance, first-year starting running back Brandon Whitaker rushed for a CFL-high 1,381 yards last season and Dahrran Diedrick led the team in rushing touchdowns with six, including three scored in a 36-23 win over the Argonauts.

Bischoff also left his mark on Special Teams, planning a direct snap to Marc-Olivier Brouillette in punt formation, which saw the backup safety scamper for a 72-yard touchdown against the Calgary Stampeders.  Sean Whyte had a solid first season handling all three phases of the kicking game for the team. His season was highlighted in setting an Alouettes record with 24 consecutive field goals and being the East Nominee for Outstanding Canadian at the end of the season.

Bischoff came to Montreal following 14 years with the Cretin-Derham Hall coaching staff in Minnesota, where he coached the Offensive Line and was the Assistant Head Coach. Bischoff’s teams played in four state championships and won in 1999. During his 14 seasons at CDH, his teams compiled a record of 168-22 and made the state playoff tournament 13 times. Aside from his football tasks, he was also the Dean of Students for 10 of his 14 years at CDH.

Prior to joining the Alouettes in 2008, he was invited to coach in the US Army High School All-American Bowl, featuring the top 88 high school players in the US, in an All-Star game which is televised on NBC. He continues to work with the All-American game each year as the Director of Football Operations for the West Team, a role he has occupied for the last four years.

During his years at CDH, he helped develop 18 offensive linemen who eventually made the step up to the NCAA division I-A level. Some well-known former players for the CDH Raiders include All-Star centre Matt Birk (Baltimore Ravens), quarterbacks Chris Weinke (Florida State Heisman Trophy Winner), Steve Walsh (Miami Hurricanes), and baseball player Joe Mauer (three-time American League Batting Champion and 2009 MLB MVP with the Minnesota Twins), as well as offensive linemen Ryan Harris (Denver Broncos) and Michael Floyd (Notre Dame/ Phoenix Cardinals) who was the #13 overall pick in the NFL draft this year.

Bischoff graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in education from the University of South Dakota in 1994, and went on to complete a Master’s degree in Education Administration from Mankato State University in 1998. He then earned a Post Master’s MN licence in administration from St. Mary’s University in 2006. He is also involved in numerous clinics around US colleges. He is the proud father of Makena Kaylynn, 13, and Morgan Elizabeth, 10, both of whom are big Alouettes fans and engaged to Brittany Leigh Fleming planning a spring 2013 wedding.
