REGINA -- The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today they have agreed to terms with George Cortez to become the team’s Offensive Coordinator.

Cortez joins the Riders after spending last season with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as Head Coach and Director of Football Operations. The native of Port Arthur, Texas brings over three decades of coaching experience to the green and white, including 19 seasons in the Canadian Football League with four Grey Cup championships. This will be Cortez’s second stint in Saskatchewan after spending the 2006 season as Offensive Line Coach.

Beyond that, the veteran coach had spent two seasons with the Buffalo Bills as Quarterbacks Coach and four seasons in the NCAA as an offensive coach at the University of California-Berkley.  

Last season’s Offensive Coordinator, Bob Dyce, remains with the team.

Cortez loves to coach so it's not surprising that he took another position. Good for the Ticats financially, but glad that he is in the west.

Cortez loves coaching so much that I figured he would land somewhere - glad it is in the west rather than the east!
