Former Canadian Football League head coach to join Hamilton?

It didn't take long for former Renegades head coach Joe Paopao to land on his feet again.
According to the Ottawa Citizen, Paopao and former assistant coach and offensive co-ordinator Kani Kauahi will join the coaching staff of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats this week.
Paopao is expected to become the offensive coordinator while Kauahi will take over the offensive line duties. Former assistants Jamie Barresi and Mark Murray did not have their contracts renewed.
"I can't confirm anything," Paopao told the Citizen when asked if the pair had signed with Hamilton.
"I don't want to say anything until we're buttoned up," Ticats general manager Rob Katz said, admitting the team would "probably" have a decision this coming week.

New Renegades owners Bernie and Lonie Glieberman replaced Paopao with John Jenkins following the season, a move that was not well received by Ottawa fans. In his four years in the nation's capital, his record was 23-49. He has also had stints with B.C., Edmonton and Winnipeg.
Kauahi was the offensive line coach in B.C. before joining the expansion Renegades in 2002.
