Riders Add Two To Coaching Staff

Saskatchewan Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin has added two coaches to the 2015 staff. 
Jermaine Copeland will join the Riders as the receivers coach.
After a stellar 11 year CFL playing career, Copeland entered the coaching ranks in 2012 as a receivers coach with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. After spending one season in Hamilton, Copeland returned to school in order to complete his degree at the University of Tennessee.
Copeland’s CFL playing career began with the Montreal Alouettes in 2001, where he spent four seasons. He then joined the Calgary Stampeders in 2005 before being traded to Toronto in 2010 where he played his final two seasons. He is a two-time CFL All-Star (2003, 2009) and a two-time Grey Cup champion having won in 2002 and 2008.
Justin Chapdelaine will join the Riders as an offensive assistant.
After a four year career at Queen’s University, Chapdelaine signed with the Ottawa Redblacks in February, 2014 but was released prior to training camp.
Chapdelaine spent last season as the running backs coach with Simon Fraser University.

I think it is a mistake from everyone's perspective for father's to hire son's in these circumstances. Is this a professional organization or a family business?
