Greg Gary out as U of T head coach

Multiple sources have confirmed that late Thursday Greg Gary has resigned as the football head coach at the University of Toronto.  Gary will remain employed by the University and move elsewhere within the department.

Sources have been told that the coaching staff has been given no guarantees whether they will return.  Two names that are on the top of U of T’s “wish list” are Stef Ptaszek and Kelly Jeffries.  CFC has no knowledge of these two coaches being available or interested.

Gary just completed his 7th season with the Blues as head coach and manager of football operations.  His overall record was 17 wins with 39 losses, never making the playoffs.

As per his bio on U of T website:

After a stint as U of T’s linebackers coach in 2008, Greg Gary returned to the Blues sidelines as head coach in 2011 with over 20 years of coaching experience under his belt.

The native of Claremont, California, Greg had been a guiding influence in the Mississauga football league since 1995 and became the head coach of the Warriors rep team in 2005, leading them to an Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) Junior Varsity championship in 2008. He got his start as the head coach of the Junior Varsity football team at his alma mater, Claremont H.S.

As an athlete, Greg received a scholarship to California State University, Fullerton, where he was the captain of the football team and won an Iron Man award in 1981. He signed as a free agent with the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams in 1982 and then headed north a year later, playing four years with the Hamilton Tiger Cats and winning the Grey Cup in 1986.
