MISSISAUGA – The Toronto Argonauts continued to bolster their championship roster on Monday with the addition of Marcus Brady as the team’s new offensive coordinator. Brady, a former CFL quarterback, served as the Alouettes offensive coordinator in 2012 following the departure of Scott Milanovich to Toronto.
Brady began his CFL career in 2002 as a member of the Argonauts. He played in 23 regular season games and four playoff games for Toronto prior to being traded to Hamilton in 2004. Brady signed with Montreal as a free agent in 2006 and retired following the 2008 season in order to become a member of the team’s coaching staff.
Brady experienced tremendous success as the Alouettes Receivers’ coach. In his three seasons working under Milanovich’s offence, Brady had six receivers named CFL East Division All-Stars and captured two Grey Cup Championships. In 2011, Brady also guided Jamel Richardson to the CFL receiving crown as he recorded an impressive 1,777 yards and eleven touchdowns.
Brady praised Milanovich for his work with the Argonauts’ in 2012 and credited him with laying the foundation for a successful long-term plan in Toronto. “I’m very excited to again be working with Scott Milanovich. We spent several years working together and he is a big reason why I wanted to come and be part of this staff to help build something special here in Toronto. It’s been a long time since I played for the Double Blue and its good to see this franchise become one of the top teams in the league again. I’m confident this organization will remain competitive and successful for the long-term.”
Brady also played in Milanovich’s offence as a quarterback in 2007 and 2008. As Scott Milanovich notes, Brady is an intelligent individual who has plenty to offer in a very talented Argonauts’ offence. “I have had the good fortune to have coached and worked with Marcus Brady for many years. He is one of the brightest young offensive minds in football, and as we prepare for the 2013 CFL season he will only make our football family stronger.”
