Regina, SK (SportsNetwork.com) - The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced on Thursday that the contract of head coach Corey Chamblin was extended through the 2017 season.
"Corey is an integral part of what we do as a team on-field. He is a well- respected, intelligent coach that has high expectations for his players," stated Riders GM Brendan Taman. "Keeping him on our sidelines was an important component for our club moving forward."
