Marc Mueller knows what makes an offence tick.

Now, his job is to find ways to make an offence stall.

The Calgary Stampeders hired the former Canada West quarterback as a defensive assistant Tuesday.

Mueller says he’ll be doing odds and ends as he gets his feet wet this coming CFL season with the Red & White.

“I look at it as a great opportunity to learn the defensive side of the game,” Mueller said. “I’ll be assisting (defensive co-ordinator Rich) Stubler with getting ready for practice and free up time for the other assistants to focus on bigger things.

“And I can help out with breaking down game-film.

“I can help out by looking at it from an offensive standpoint, but I’m there to learn from the three coaches on defence and free up time so they can work on game-planning while I do the smaller tasks.”
