Ben Olson steps down as Riders defensive line coach


The Saskatchewan Roughriders are on the lookout for a new defensive line coach following the resignation of Ben Olson.

On Saturday, the former defensive line coach for the green and white was hired to be the defensive line coach for Incarnate Word, a private institution located in Texas.

3downnation John Hodge reported the move on Sunday.


The University of the Incarnate Word plays in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) of the FCS.

Olson joined the Roughriders prior to the 2021 season. Last year A.C. Leonard and Jonathon Woodard finished on top of the league leaders in sacks.
