B.C. Lions head coach Wally Buono says a new offensive co-ordinator isn't in the cards but a committee won't run his offence either.

"We have three very good coaches," he said at a press conference yesterday. "All have been offensive co-ordinators ... and we've established our responsibilities."

Quarterback coach Steff Kruck will call plays from the sideline while coaches Dan Dorazio and Jamie Barresi will share increased game-day responsibilities.

"There's always been a really strong closeness to what we've done offensively and we'll still keep running the offence Wally's designed," said Kruck who has coached with Buono over the past nine years.

Buono also confirmed all-star receiver Ryan Thelwell and linebacker Carl Kidd will not be pursued in free agency.
