WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach Mike O’Shea has found a coach to run his offence, and he didn’t have to look far.

Marcel Bellefeuille will return as the Bombers offensive co-ordinator next season, the team announced today.

Bellefeuille took over the job under former coach Tim Burke last season, after first joining the team as a consultant.

“Marcel brings a wealth of experience and success,” O’Shea said in a statement. “Having worked with some of our players already, and having a grasp on the type of organization we are trying to build, I feel Marcel is the right fit.”

Bellefeuille was a head coach in Hamilton from 2009-11, recording a 26-28 record, including three playoff appearances.
