 The term "top special teams co-ordinator" can be a very subjective term, but there seems to be a consensus out there that Craig Dickenson is that man in the CFL.

"It's very flattering, but it's opinion," Dickenson said. "The reality is you're going to be judged on results. I've been fortunate. I've been on good teams with good special teams players, and I've been on some teams that weren't quite as good and we struggled a little bit."

For the last few years Dickenson's special teams have been among the cream of the league's crop. The Saskatchewan Roughriders, where he coached the last two years, had the best kickoff return and kickoff cover teams in 2012, and their punt teams were both in the top half of the league. The year before only one of his four special teams with the Riders was in the lower half of the league, and that group was fifth.
