HAMILTON -- Hamilton Tiger-Cats Vice President of Football Operations, General Manager and Head Coach Kent Austin has made the first addition to his coaching staff today with the hiring of Tommy Condell as Offensive Coordinator and Receivers Coach.

Condell has spent the last three seasons alongside Austin as Cornell's assistant head coach and wide receivers coach.  Under his watch, Cornell receivers claimed spots on first and second All-Ivy teams in each of the past two seasons.  In 2011, Big Red receiver Shane Savage set school records with 65 receptions and 1,080 receiving yards.

"Tommy is intelligent, creative and has an extremely strong work ethic," said Austin. "He is an outstanding fundamental teacher, but even more importantly he is an outstanding individual who relates well to his players.  He demands results and has a great track record of production from his players."

Condell joins the Ticats staff with four years of Canadian Football League experience under his belt.  His previous experience includes stints as offensive coordinator with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (2006), quarterbacks coach, receivers coach and pass game coordinator with the Ottawa Renegades (2004-05) as well as Special Teams Coordinator with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (1997).

His resume also includes stops at several U.S. colleges, including Southeastern Louisiana, Louisiana at Monroe, Stephen F. Austin, McNeese State, Hamilton College, Illinois Wesleyan, as well as the Arena Football League's Albany Firebirds.

Over the course of his extensive coaching career, Condell has tutored every position on offence and has nine years of experience as an offensive coordinator or pass game coordinator.

And then we have the top kick returns for TDs from the past season. Can you say Chris Williams (in 4 out of 10!)? Great job!

T4TW- I agree - Thigpen was great as well and is now returning kicks for Miami. Really hope that Williams will stay around past this year but getting a look from the NFL is always a real possibility for him. Don't remember how successful Lumsden was with KRs.

ALL football decisions are wait & see. That's why teams have to actually PLAY the games and the fans have to watch them.

Seems like a good hire when there is a good working relationship with Austin obviously already in place, but as with everything else new on the Ticats staff, results on the field in 2013 will really tell the tale.
