The Saskatchewan Roughriders have received permission to speak with Bombers defensive line coach Richard Harris.

Riders head coach Greg Marshall and Harris, who has spent the last five years with the Blue and Gold, have plenty of history together in the CFL, dating back to their days together with the Ottawa Renegades.

They also spent three years together in Winnipeg.

Harris could be more willing to leave the Bombers now considering it appears he has been passed over when it comes to filling the team's vacant defensive co-ordinator position.

In other related Bomber coaching news, former head man Mike Kelly's name has come up in the NFL rumour mill. According to Fox Sports, Kelly is being considered for an assistant position with the Carolina Panthers.

Ron Rivera, whom Kelly knows well from their NFL days together, became the new head coach of the Panthers earlier this week.
