Marcel Bellefeuille killed it in his interview with Mike O’Shea, and that’s one of the big reasons why he is staying on as Winnipeg’s offensive co-ordinator.

“When we got a chance to sit down and chat, there were ideas and concepts that he was passionate about that just resonated with me in the way that I think offensive football in the CFL should be played,” Bombers head coach Mike O’Shea said Wednesday during a conference call.

“There are just certain things that I’ve paid attention to and tried to defend over the course of my playing time and watched when I was a coach that I thought could be taken advantage of more. And he hit home on all those ideas. It was like he read my notes. It was a good decision and an easy decision.”

The only other known candidate was Roughriders quarterbacks coach Khari Jones. Winnipeg’s atrocious offence during the 2013 season — the last half of which was under Bellefeuille’s watch after the Bombers fired Gary Crowton — wasn’t enough
