Running Back Coach and Assistant Head Coach
Bolduc enters his 21st season of coaching, his eight with the Alouettes. Under his guidance in 2021, the Alouettes finished first in the CFL with 2,023 rushing yards. Running back William Stanback reached the 1,000 rushing yards plateau, as he finished the season with 1,176 rushing yards on 193 carries (6.1 yards per carry), while crossing the goal line three times. The Alouettes also finished first with a league high of 2,023 rushing yards.
The former Université de Sherbrooke Vert et Or Head Coach returned to the Alouettes and to professional football as an Offensive Assistant Coach in 2014. He held several titles since, from Assistant Offensive Coordinator, to Receiver Coach, as well as Special Teams Assistant Coach.
Following his playing career, he was named Offensive Coordinator of the Université de Montréal Carabins. He then embarked on a successful coaching career at Collège Montmorency, turning a fledgling football program into a top RSEQ contender. He led the team to its first BOL D’OR in 2005 before taking the reins of the University of Sherbrooke Vert et Or in 2007. In 2010, he led the team to its first playoff victory and a first Dunsmore Cup game. The following season, he received coach of the year award in the Quebec Conference after the Vert et Or completed the season with a 7-2 record.
The Alma, QC native enjoyed a productive CFL career playing for the Ottawa Rough Riders and Edmonton Eskimos. However, it was during his four seasons in Montreal that Bolduc excelled and played his best football. As a member of the Alouettes from 1998 to 2001, Bolduc emerged as a leader and was named the special teams captain in 1999 and in 2000.
He played his college football with the Concordia University Stingers from 1992 to 1995, helping them to win the Dunsmore Cup in 1993 and earning all-star honours in his two final seasons. Previously he played for the Victoriaville Vulkins at the Cégep AA level, helping the team win the BOL D’OR.
He is a father of four, Thomas, Raphaël as well as the twins Justine and Elizabeth. Thomas is currently playing for the Université Laval Rouge et Or as a quarterback, while Raphaël is a receiver for Champlain-Lennoxville College Cougars.
