The Calgary Stampeders announced the hiring of Rich Stubler as their new defensive coordinator on Thursday morning.
Stubler had spent the last two seasons in the same capacity with the BC Lions.
"I'm pleased to be able to add a coach with such a wealth of experience," said Stampeders coach and general manager John Hufnagel in a release. "Rich has a great track record of success as a coach in this league and I know he'll be a tremendous asset to our staff."
Stubler made his CFL coaching debut in 1983 as the defensive coordinator for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He's also spent time in the same role with Edmonton Eskimos and Toronto Argonauts. In 2008, Stubler served as head coach of the Argos.
"I'm appreciative that the Stampeders and Coach Hufnagel have a little faith in me,” said Stubler in the same release. “I'm really excited to come and work for the Red and White.”
Stubler had met with new Winnipeg Blue Bombers coach Mike O'Shea last week about coming aboard in the same capacity with the Bombers.
As a CFL coach, Stubler has won four Grey Cups.
