Alouettes proceed to changes due to new CFL salary cap
Due to the new salary cap that will be imposed on the football operations departments of all CFL teams as of 2019, the Montreal Alouettes announced that they have not renewed the contracts of some members of football operations and of the coaching staff.
Coaches Billy Parker (defensive back coach), Jason Tucker (receivers coach), Chris Mosley (assistant offensive line coach) and Cris Dishman (defensive assistant coach) were advised that their contracts expiring at the end of the year will not be renewed for 2019.
The organization also announced that the contracts of Draft Coordinator and National Scout Éric Deslauriers and Director of College Scouting Russ Lande will not be extended.
“As for all CFL teams, we must work with the new rules put in place by the league,” said Montreal Alouettes General Manager Kavis Reed. “On behalf of the entire organization, I want to thank all the coaches, as well as Eric and Russ for their hard work and dedication and I wish them all the best for the future.”
The new salary cap limits the number of employees, as well as the payroll of football operations departments.
