The Ottawa CFL team’s first full-time football employee is still an Alouette — sort of.

Marcel Desjardins, who was named Ottawa’s GM two weeks ago, is winding up his days as the Montreal Alouettes assistant GM.

“Right now, I’m sitting in Olympic Stadium. I’m 3/4 (Montreal) and 1/4 (Ottawa),” said Desjardins. “I’ll be in Ottawa next week.”

Desjardins is looking to add to his football staff of one in the near future.

“We’ve got stuff in the works, but nothing’s finalized,” he said. “I hope to know within a week whether a certain person is an option or not.”
