EDMONTON - The Edmonton Eskimos have announced two more coaching additions to their roster.

Former Eskimo Marcus Crandell will be step up to the offensive co-ordinator position, while Steff Kruck will take the reigns as receivers coach.

According to the Eskimos' news release:

"Entering his third year as a CFL coach, Crandell joins the Eskimo coaching staff after serving two successful seasons as the Saskatchewan Roughrider offensive assistant. Before making the move to the coaching ranks in 2009, the North Carolina native spent 11 seasons as a quarterback in the CFL including three seasons with the Eskimos (1997-’99) before signing with the Stampeders in 2001. Marcus led the Stamps to their fifth Grey Cup Championship that year and was named the 2001 Grey Cup MVP. Crandell amassed 1,23 completions for 16,303 yards and 79 touchdowns in 145 games in the CFL."

"Steff Kruck comes to the Eskimos after serving five years with the BC Lions as their quarterbacks coach (2005-2009). Prior to moving to the CFL, the Philadelphia native spent 15 years coaching at the collegiate level in the US."
