Mace looking to flip script
Corey Mace says he’s confident he can help get the Saskatchewan Roughriders back to winning. Mace said Friday at his introductory news conference as Saskatchewan’s head coach he knows what the expectations are in a market that loves CFL football, and that he and the team will “get it done.” The Roughriders are looking to flip the script after two disappointing seasons that played out in similar fashion. Saskatchewan ended both 2022 and ’23 on seven-game losing streaks to finish 6-12 and miss the playoffs, and the team declined to renew former head coach Craig Dickenson’s contract after this past season. Mace, 37, from Port Moody, B.C., is in his first job as a CFL head coach. He spent the past two seasons as the Toronto Argonauts’ defensive co-ordinator, helping the team win a Grey Cup in 2022. He also won two Grey Cups with the Calgary Stampeders, once as a player (2014) and once as a defensive line coach (2018).
