Aug 6,2014(ISN) – Huskie Athletics head football coach Brian Towriss is pleased to announce the hiring of former University of Saskatchewan offensive lineman and retired-CFL standout Scott Flory to the team’s coaching staff.
Returning home to Saskatchewan after a 15-year career with the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League, Flory will serve as the team’s offensive-run game coordinator. He will also oversee all aspects of the offence for the Huskies.
“We are very excited to have Scott join our coaching staff,” said Towriss who is entering his 31st year as head coach. “Scott’s experience as a player in the CIS and CFL provides him with a tremendous understanding of what it takes to run a productive offence in the Canadian game. He has learned from the best, from Don Matthewsw to Mark Trestman. For the better part of 15 years he protected Anthony Calvillo and was a stalwart in one of the most productive offences in CFL history.”
During Flory’s impressive CFL career, he was named a CFL All-Star nine times, a CFL East All-Star 11 times and handed the Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman Award twice. He also won three Grey Cup Championships with Montreal in 2002, 2009 and 2010.
Flory played with the Huskies from 1994 to 1998. Winning two Vanier Cup championships with the Huskies in 1996 and 1998, Flory was drafted to the CFL by the Montreal Alouettes in 1998 (third round, 15th overall). He was named a Canada West All-Star three times and a CIS All-Canadian twice in during his University career.
