SASKATOON – Scott Flory is returning to the University of Saskatchewan.

The former Montreal Alouettes star offensive lineman has joined the Huskies coaching staff. Flory, a Regina native, will serve as the team’s offensive run-game co-ordinator and assist with other aspects of the offence.

Flory spent 15 years with the Alouettes, where he was named a CFL all-star nine times and won the league’s outstanding offensive lineman award twice. He also captured three Grey Cup titles with Montreal (2002, 2009 and 2010).

“We are very excited to have Scott join our coaching staff,” said Huskies head coach Brian Towriss in a statement. “Scott’s experience as a player in the CIS and CFL provides him with a tremendous understanding of what it takes to run a productive offence in the Canadian game.

“He has learned from the best, from Don Matthews to Marc Trestman. For the better part of 15 years he protected Anthony Calvillo and was a stalwart in one of the most productive offences in CFL history.”

Flory played with the Huskies from 1994 to 1998 before being drafted by the Alouettes in the third round (15th overall) of the 1998 draft. He helped Saskatchewan win two Vanier Cups and was a CIS All-Canadian twice during his university career.
