Special Teams Coordinator Craig Dickenson Resigns


The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today that Special Teams Coordinator Craig Dickenson has tendered his resignation.

“My decision to resign is based on off-season commitments I have made that I intend to honour and also to a conflict of schedule which could not be worked out,” Dickenson said in a written statement to the Club. “I appreciate the effort and work of the players and coaches I had the privilege of working with during my two years in Regina.  I want to thank Coach Chamblin for hiring me and supporting me this past season.  I especially want to thank and express my sincere appreciation to Jim Hopson, Brendan Taman, and Jeremy O’Day.  Thank you Rider Nation for your support and enthusiasm these past two years.”

Dickenson joined the Riders in 2011 after spending the previous season with the Oakland Raiders as a Special Teams Assistant.  A well respected coach, Dickenson also had stints with the Calgary Stampeders where he spent seven seasons and the Montreal Alouettes where he spent the 2003 season.
