Another Canadian Football League Coach Fired

One day after the Hamilton Tiger-Cats made a coaching change, their East Division rivals are ready to pull the plug on their head coach.

The Toronto Argonauts have called a news conference for 11:15 am this morning to make what the club calls "a major coaching announcement".

TSN has confirmed that Rich Stubler's tenure at the helm of the team is over and that Don Matthews will be brought in to try and right the ship.

Matthews is the CFL's all-time winningest coach with 251 victories. He also has five Grey Cup titles to his credit, two of them with Toronto in 1996 and 1997. He stepped down as the Alouettes head coach in October 2006 due to health reasons.

Stubler's future with the club appeared in jeopardy prior to the Labour Day matchup against rival Hamilton. However, the Argos managed to squeeze out a narrow 34-31 win to buy their embattled head coach some more time. Last weekend's 45-19 thrashing at the hands of division leading Montreal dropped the Argos to 4-6, just four points up on both Winnipeg and Hamilton in the East.
