OBIT: Rams mourn passing of former head coach Gord Currie

The University of Regina Rams are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of legendary coach Gord Currie, who was the head coach of the Rams from 1965 to 1976.

In his 12 seasons as head coach, the Rams had a 109-27 record and won six Canadian junior football championships. Even more importantly, Coach Currie’s impact went far beyond the football field. He’s one of the most widely respected amateur football coaches in the history of the sport and the impact he has had on the Rams program and the players that have gone through it is immeasurable.

Coach Currie was the head coach at Balfour Tech prior to taking over the reins with the Rams. He was also a baseball coach for the Regina Red Sox – who play their home games at Currie Field – and a teacher and principal. He also served as an MLA for four years in the 1980s and is a member of the Regina Sports Hall of Fame, the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Football Hall of Fame as well as a recipient of the Order of Canada.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Coach Currie’s family today.
