TORONTO - Scott Milanovich’s ability to manage an offence will now be put to its ultimate test.
In the process, Milanovich’s skills as a head coach of the Argonauts will be revealed, perhaps even exposed if the necessary adjustments aren’t made.
Give credit to Milanovich for refusing to ever bask in any glory, warranted or not, for preaching a team-first philosophy that favours no player, regardless of pedigree or performance.
When Cory Boyd needed to be shown the door last year, the 1,000-yard rusher was released.
When defensive captain Brandon Isaac began pushing the envelope in team settings earlier this month, the playmaking linebacker was released.
A Grey Cup and the expected coach-of-the-year honour would mark Milanovich’s first year in Toronto, accolades and achievements that would be quickly dismissed the moment the 2013 season began.
