The Argonauts continue to interview candidates for their vacant position of head coach.

The latest to be grilled was Doug Berry, who was interviewed on Friday.

Berry’s question-and-answer session came a day after Scott Milanovich was put under the microscope.

Berry, 61, was the head coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 2006-08. He was fired in November, 2008.

In Berry’s three seasons with Winnipeg, the Bombers were 27-26-1 and lost in the 2007 Grey Cup to the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Other candidates who have made the Argos’ short list reportedly include Hamilton Tiger-Cats defensive co-ordinator Greg Marshall and Calgary Stampeders defensive co-ordinator Chris Jones.

Toronto has been without a coach since the middle of December, when Bart Andrus was shown the door after leading the Argos to a 3-15 record and a second consecutive season of missing the playoffs.

The next coach of the Argos will be the fourth person to take the helm in the past two years, following Andrus, Don Matthews and Rich Stubler.
