Former Saskatchewan Roughriders coach Danny Barrett has a job in the NFL.
Barrett, who coached the Riders from 2000-2006 and had a record of 57-68, is joining the coaching staff of the Miami Dolphins where he will serve as the team’s running backs coach.
After being relieved of his duties at the end of the 2006 season, Barrett went on to be the head coach at the University of Buffalo and was the head coach there when former Rider, now Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback Drew Willy was with the team.
Barrett left Buffalo and had been serving as the running backs coach at the University of Central Florida before being given the title of interim head coach when George O’Leary stepped down midway through the 2015 season. Barrett did not win a game in his stint as interim head coach in 4 tries.
