EDMONTON - Another Edmonton Eskimos training camp, another new set of offensive and defensive co-ordinators for head coach Kavis Reed.

Since joining the team in 2011, he has had four different co-ordinators or ‘advisors’ filling those two positions: Marcus Crandell, Rich Stubler, David Kelly and Mark Nelson.

Five if you include Reed, himself taking over the official title of offensive co-ordinator after Crandell was put on the back-burner partway through last season.

While it isn’t exactly the definition of stability, it’s not the end of the world for Reed.

“The biggest thing is that I’ve had the opportunity to work with some very good co-ordinators, and as a coach, you know things happen. Change is inevitable in our profession,” he said. “The biggest thing is to make certain the transition is as smooth as possible and to also make certain that they assimilate to our our culture very fast.
