The Canadian Football League named Hamilton Tiger-Cats' head coach Greg Marshall the 2004 CFL Coach of the Year. He becomes the first Tiger-Cats' coach to win the award since Ron Lancaster in 1998.
Marshall, who became the first coach to jump from the Canadian university football ranks to the CFL, was named head coach of the Tiger-Cats in December 2003
In his first year at the helm, Marshall guided Hamilton to a 9-8-1 record, a huge upgrade from its 1-17 mark the previous season. The Tiger-Cats' campaign concluded in the East Division semifinal game, with a 24-6 loss to the Toronto Argonauts.
Other finalists for the award included Toronto's Mike Clemons and Wally Buono of the B.C. Lions.
The CFL Coach of Year Award is officially named the Annis Stukus Trophy and has been presented annually by the Edmonton Eskimo Alumni Association since 1961.
