Head coach Mike O'Shea signs three-year extension with Blue Bombers

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed head coach Mike O'Shea to a three-year contract extension.

O'Shea won his second consecutive Annis Stukus Trophy as the CFL's top coach this year after leading the Blue Bombers to a club-record 15 regular-season wins and a third straight trip to the Grey Cup.

The Blue Bombers are 82-58 under O'Shea with Grey Cup championships in 2019 and 2021.

Winnipeg has posted six consecutive seasons with double-digit wins, matching a franchise-best stretch first established from 1957-62.

A former star linebacker, O'Shea was named to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2017 after a 16-year playing career with Toronto and Hamilton that saw him earn three Grey Cup rings.

He began his coaching career as special teams co-ordinator with Toronto from 2010-13, helping the Argonauts win a Grey Cup in 2012.
