EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Eskimos announced Monday morning that Kavis Reed will not return as head coach in 2014.
 
“We thank Kavis for his dedication and hard work over the past three seasons and wish him the best in the future,” says Eskimos General Manager Ed Hervey.
 
A former green and gold defensive back (1995-99), Reed ends his coaching career in Edmonton with a 4-14 record this season and a 22-32 record overall since being named the 19th head coach of the Edmonton Eskimos on Dec. 10, 2010.
 
In his first season, Reed was a Canadian Football League Coach of the Year finalist after the Eskimos finished with an 11-7 record, second in the Western Division and hosted their first home playoff game since 2004.

In 2012, the Eskimos finished with a 7-11 record and lost the crossover Eastern Semi-Final to the eventual Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts.

If I were Ed Hervey, I would give serious consideration to Dave Dickenson.

Actually thought that Burke would be gone first but not a surprise given the declining success of the past couple of seasons.

This paves the way for Reed to become the next HC in Montreal

Next Head Coaches: Edmonton: Rick Campbell. Winnipeg: Khari Jones, Ottawa: Paul La Police, Montreal: Dave Dickenson. All good candidates and coordinators with their respective teams taking promotions or as some on here refer to as poaching LOL.

Neither Campbell or Dickenson are ready to head coach, though Dave will be in a year or three. Remember, you pull a cake out of the oven too early, it falls, it's done, toss it in the trash. Both men need more time. Plus, the rumour here is that Huff goes upstairs very soon, and Dave will start in calgary as a head coach.

I would think that Calgary's coaches could be thinner next year.

I'm wondering what Hervey will do about Marshall now. The Esks passing D was decent but their rushing D had a lot to be desired. Will be interesting to see who Hervey brings in now.
