The closest Scott Milanovich is going to get to the Grey Cup in his first year back in the Canadian Football League is the bright veranda of his Florida home.

From there, the head coach of the Edmonton Football Club held court with a set of sideline contemporaries Wednesday during a coaches video conference that belonged to Grey Cup Unite’s weeklong slate, held over what would have been Grey Cup Week in Regina had the season not been cancelled by COVID-19.

And the virtual event offered Milanovich a possibility to reunite and recollect with Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach Orlondo Steinauer, as well as the head guy on the ruling Grey Cup champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Mike O’Shea. The trio won the 100th Grey Cup together on the Toronto Argonauts coaching personnel in 2012, with Milanovich having risen to the head coaching ranks for the first time.

” Two of my preferred men in business: CFL, NFL, college football,” Milanovich stated of what he described as “holdovers from Jim Barker’s personnel. I had no doubt that they would go on to be highly successful.”
