Bryan Chiu back in CFL, as Argonauts' line coach
Former Alouette had been coaching at Concordia University
The Toronto Argonauts have named former CFL all-star Bryan Chiu as their offensive line coach.
Chiu spent his entire 13-year CFL career as a centre with the Montreal Alouettes. He was named a CFL all-star seven times, the league's outstanding lineman in 2002, and helped the Alouettes earn Grey Cup titles in 2002 and 2009.
The Vancouver native retired as a Grey Cup champion before the 2010 season.
"I am very excited that Bryan Chiu was available to join our staff," Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said in a statement. "Bryan is a competitor whose 13 years of playing experience and winning approach will prove invaluable to our offensive line."
Chiu was most recently a member of the Concordia Stingers' coaching staff, serving as offensive line coach and assistant offensive co-ordinator.
"I am thrilled for the opportunity to come to Toronto and work with the entire coaching staff, especially Scott Milanovich and [GM] Jim Barker," Chiu said. "These two men were each, at different times, instrumental in the Grey Cup championship teams I was part of as a player. I want to thank the Argonauts organization for believing in me and I look forward to meeting the players and getting to work."
