There is no doubt that newly minted Saskatchewan Roughrider head coach Cory Chamblin is glad to be here.

But Saskatchewan Roughrider fans have mixed reactions to the team naming him as head coach.

“I don’t know a lot about him,” said one fan.

“No, I don’t really know him,” said another.

And some fans want to know more about Chamblin before they can make a decision.

“I need more history on this guy. Give me some history, you know? Not just because he’s a nice guy,” said one fan.

It isn’t the first time Chamblin has followed in Greg Marshall’s footsteps. Chamblin also used to be the defensive co-ordinator for Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Some Rider fans may be unsure now but Chamblin is yet to step on the field and show us why Brendan Taman thinks he is the guy to do the job.

Chamblin has vision for team

Chamblin has five years of coaching experience in the league. Thursday night on Sports Night with Drew Ramenda, he talked about his vision for the team.

“Football needs to be fun. It needs to be exciting in the CFL and it needs to be fast. So, I think that’s part of the vision we’re going to set in place here,” he said.

Chamblin has been to the Grey Cup twice, winning it with the Calgary Stampeders in 2008.

The 34-year-old has also had coaching experience in the NFL and NFL Europe.
