Richie Hall Returns

It’s official!

Hall was introduced Tuesday as the CFL team’s defensive co-ordinator, ending weeks of speculation about his return. Hall spent 15 seasons with the Riders, including his last eight as defensive co-ordinator.

“It feels good but a little intimidating because they’ve been to the Grey Cup the last two years,” Hall said during a media conference in the Riders’ Mosaic Stadium locker room. “You feel that you want to maintain the tradition that has already been established. It feels different being back because it feels like I’ve been gone longer than two years. I’m very blessed that Saskatchewan was willing to bring me back.”

Don’t know how the football fans feel but knitting aficionados will be thrilled. Hall’s one of the the coolest yarnhands in Western Canada.

  1. The Riders also hired a new special teams coach. It’s Craig Dickenson, who assisted on special teams with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders last season. He’s also worked for the San Diego Chargers and the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders in the same capacity. He replaces Jim Daley who bore the brunt of the blame for the Riders’ horrendous performance on special teams in 2010.
