Under Trestman, Calvillo had some of his best seasons, winning back-to-back MVP awards in 2008 and 2009. Calvillo won three Grey Cups (2002, 2009, 2010) with the Alouettes.
Calvillo has spent the past three seasons in various roles on the Alouettes' coaching staff, but was left off new head coach Mike Sherman's staff.
With the Argos, Calvillo will fill the void left by departed offensive coordinator Marcus Brady, who was hired by the NFL's Indianapolis Colts earlier this week.
