New head coach Tom Higgins introduced the coaching staff for the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday, which includes three former coaches from the Quebec football conference.

Noel Thorpe returns as the team's defensive coordinator and adds assistant head coach and defensive backs coach to his responsibilities this season. In 2011 and 2012, Thorpe was part of the Université de Montréal coaching staff.

Rick Worman is the team's new offensive coordinator, returning to the CFL after a brief stint with Mississippi Valley State University. A former quarterback in the CFL, Worman has been a part of two Grey Cup championships over his coaching career. In 2012, he served as a scout for the Ottawa RedBlacks.

Ryan Dinwiddie returns for a second season as quarterbacks coach and is expected to work closer with the rest of the offensive staff. Erik Campbell also returns for his second season as receivers coach as does Mark Speckman as running backs coach.

Former Université de Sherbrooke head coach André Bolduc debuts as the team's offensive quality control coach and special teams assistant. Jean-Vincent Posy-Audette, a former member of Bolduc's staff at Sherbrooke, is the team's new defensive assistant and special teams assistant.

And following a stellar 13-year playing career in the CFL, former defensive end Anwar Stewart will make his coaching debut in 2014 after being named the club's new defensive quality control coach.
