Gades name new Canadian Football League head coach

John Jenkins was named head coach of the Ottawa Renegades on Monday.
Jenkins became the second head coach in the team's four-year history.
Executive vice president of football operations, Forrest Gregg, emphasized the range of experience Jenkins brings with him over the course of 30 years in both coaching and player personnel.
"We believe that at this point in our history, we need somebody who can take us to the next level, first to the playoffs and then to the Grey Cup," said Gregg.
Jenkins has been an offensive coordinator with five different CFL teams, which included the 1997 Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts. He also was the head coach at the University of Houston.
"I have always had a great respect for the great CFL traditions and championship teams that have been here in the past," said Jenkins. "I also understand that the fans of Ottawa are starved for a winning team and I am here today to commit that I will dedicate myself completely to returning that championship tradition to the nation's capital."
