Coaching updates in the “Q”

(With files from: Le Journal de Quebec)

The Université de Sherbrooke Vert & Or will announce the identity of its next head coach by the end of the week.

The five-person selection committee, including former head coach Alain Lapointe and now program coordinator, received four candidates in an interview.

The successful candidates are the Lennoxville Cougars Patrick Boies offensive coordinator; The former head coach of the Old Montreal Spartans Chérif Nicolas; The coach of the linebackers and responsible for the defensive front of the Carabins of the University of Montreal, Paul-Eddy Saint-Vilien; And coach of the defensive line of the Vert & Or Mathieu Lecompte who has been with the Foxes for three years as deputy.

The interviews took place last Friday and the candidates are waiting for a response from the university. Boies was also in the race when Green & Gold hired David Lessard after the 2011 season. Lessard, Boies and Marc Loranger were the three finalists.

A salary of between $ 60,000 and $ 80,000 will be offered to the successor of Lessard according to the information obtained.

Bishop’s

On the side of the Bishop’s Gaiters who also have to find a new head coach, the possible five interviews will take place on Wednesday.

The process was delayed to allow André Bolduc to be determined on his future with the Montreal Alouettes, which is still not the case.
Coach of the Alouettes, Bolduc wants to remain in the CFL, but the absence of a head coach and a manager-manager leaves some doubt about his return.

Bolduc did not apply for the position at Bishop’s, but the Gaiters contacted him to check his interest. If Jacques Chapdelaine is confirmed as head coach of the Alouettes, he has acted after the departure of Jim Popp, Bolduc has a very good chance of remaining on the coaching staff.

Candidate in Sherbrooke, Nicolas is also in the race for the position at Bishop’s. The Gaiters want to hire Kevin Mackay’s successor by the end of 2016.
