The search for a new head coach for the Edmonton Eskimos starts now.

I mean right now.

Immediately.

Possibly the very minute you are reading this if it’s Wednesday morning and you’re sitting at your desk at work.

“The letters go out in the morning requesting permission to talk to the coaches,” said G.M. Ed Hervey as he sat in his office the day after firing Kavis Reed as head coach.

It’s not a long list. Nor is it a short list. But it’s obviously a list he’s been working on for some time. And you can bet that one of those letters will have the following address:

Calgary Stampeders Football Club

McMahon Stadium

Calgary, Alberta

T2M 4R6.

Offensive co-ordinator Dave Dickenson and defensive co-ordinator Rick Campbell will obviously be candidates, not necessarily in that order.
