It sure didn't stop with Rick Campbell.

The Ottawa RedBlacks, who locked up their first head coach last week, are about to add to more key pieces to the puzzle.

With a few more "i's" to be dotted and some "t's" to be crossed, the RedBlacks should soon have agreements in place with Montreal Alouettes linebackers coach Mark Nelson as their defensive co-ordinator and Calgary Stampeders offensive line coach Mike Gibson as their offensive co-ordinator.

RedBlacks GM Marcel Desjardins, working diligently with his staff to prepare for the Dec. 16 CFL expansion draft, wouldn't comment on specific coach signings.

"Nothing's finalized. It gets a little sensitive when other teams are involved," said Desjardins.
