Coaches’ group to hear Tiger-Cat


Hamilton Tiger-Cats offensive line coach Doug Malone will present “Run Game: Inside and Outside Zone” at this year’s Football Canada Coaches Association Convention, March 24-25 at Corpus Christi Secondary School in Burlington.

The FCCA Convention is a coaching development opportunity which features presentations from some of the premier minor, junior, Canadian and American university, as well as the Canadian Football League and National Football League coaches.

Malone has nearly 30 years of National Collegiate Athletic Association coaching experience and is returning for his second season as the Tiger-Cats offensive line coach in 2012.

Before joining the Ticats, Malone spent three seasons at Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina as interim head coach and offensive coordinator. He joined Presbyterian College after one season as the offensive coordinator at Western Carolina.

From 1999-2006, Malone coached at Tennessee Tech serving seven seasons as offensive coordinator before assuming the role of interim head coach in 2006. The Golden Eagles posted record-setting seasons in 2001 and 2002, becoming only the second offensive unit in school history to boast a 2,000-yard passer and 1,000-yard rusher.

Malone also spent 13 years at Wingate serving eight seasons as offensive coordinator before leading as head coach for five years.

He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at University of Texas at El Paso, where he worked with the offensive line.
