Chris Jones isn’t expecting the friendliest of welcomes Saturday afternoon.
It is only pre-season, but the man who coached the Edmonton Eskimos to a Grey Cup championship and then bolted to Regina taking his assistant coaches with him, returns to Edmonton for the Riders second and final pre-season game.
Jones says being back in Edmonton doesn’t deter from the main goal
“It’s more about what we need to do as a football team moreso than coming back here. It was a good two year ride here but it’s like everywhere else I’ve been; I’ve got a job to do, they hired me for a reason and that’s where my focus is.”
620 CKRM’s game-day coverage starts at 11 AM with the play-by-play following at 2.
