Former Canadian Football League star named Green Bay QB Coach

The Green Bay Packers named former CFL star Tom Clements their quarterbacks coach Sunday.
Clements spent the past two seasons as offensive co-ordinator for Buffalo, which fired him Jan. 6.
He has coached quarterbacks for seven years with Pittsburgh, Kansas City and New Orleans. He also worked as quarterbacks coach for his alma mater, Notre Dame, under Lou Holtz.
Clements, a member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, spent 12 years in the CFL with Ottawa, Saskatchewan, Hamilton and Winnipeg. The seven-time divisional all-star captured two Grey Cup titles, one with Ottawa in 1976 and the other with Winnipeg in 1984. The league's rookie of the year in 1975 and MVP in 1987, Clements completed 2,807 of 4,657 CFL passes (60.3 per cent) for 39,041 yards and 252 touchdowns.

Clements played one season (1980) as a quarterback with the Chiefs.
