There was some shuffling on the deck of the good ship Argonaut on Monday.

The Toronto Argonauts (2-8-1) added some beef to their offensive line and some experience to their coaching staff.

Urban Bowman was added as special teams coach, while John Eason and Wally Highsmith were named associate head coaches in charge of the offence and defence, respectively.

The Argonauts also acquired non-import offensive lineman Rohn Meyer from the Calgary Stampeders for a second-round draft pick in 2001.

Bowman is a longtime CFL assistant and, by far, the most experienced coach on the Argos staff.

"We are fortunate to acquire a leader who is experienced, tough and has CFL savvy," Argos' rookie head coach Mike (Pinball) Clemons said.

Highsmith was the team's defensive line coach.

Eason was an unpaid consultant for John Huard, who resigned on Aug. 25 and was replaced by Clemons.

Meyer has spent the entire season on the Stampeders' injury list, despite playing in 72 games over the past four seasons.

The 28-year-old native of Rush Lake, Sask., was the Stamps' starting offensive tackle in their 1998 Grey Cup victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Jude St. John is the lone offensive lineman healthy enough to appear in all 11 games for the Argos this season.
