Corey Chamblin can be proud about being part of the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ most memorable moment.
He was the team’s head coach when it won the 2013 Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium.
A year and half later, he was unemployed after being fired midway through a win-less season.
Maybe he’s bitter about not getting a longer opportunity to rebuild the Roughriders. Maybe he would prefer to be a CFL head coach, rather than an assistant with the Toronto Argonauts when he returns to Saskatchewan for a CFL game Saturday.
Whatever. Chamblin has been telling reporters that it’s just another game, that his stint in Saskatchewan was just a small part of history.
Sorry, Corey, nobody is that stoic.
Chamblin, Eagle Keys, John Gregory and Kent Austin are the only coaches who have led the Riders to Grey Cup victories. It’s an exclusive club.
Chamblin has every right to boast about being in that group. He can be proud of his accomplishments in Saskatchewan. Chamblin can hide his emotions if he wants, but there’s not a thing wrong with expressing them.
