Chad Kackert retires from CFL after serious injury
2012 Grey Cup MVP broke ankle late last season
Toronto Argonauts star running back Chad Kackert has retired.
The team says Kackert will be its new strength and conditioning coach.
Kackert, the 2012 Grey Cup MVP, suffered a broken ankle late last season.
Argos head coach Scott Milanovich says it became clear to the Argos and Kackert "that his leg injury would prevent him from competing at a high level."
"We believe his experience will be valuable to our players in helping them prepare themselves physically each week," Milanovich said in a statement.
The Argonauts open training camp Sunday.
