The Edmonton Eskimos announce Assistant Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator Mike Benevides will not be returning for the 2019 season.
“As a result of the newly implemented football operations salary cap, we could not come to terms with Mike Benevides,” said VP of Football Operations and General Manager Brock Sunderland. “Mike worked as hard as anybody for this organization, and the Eskimos wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
“I will truly miss the amazing fan base and people of Edmonton, the relationships I’ve built with the players and all those in the Edmonton Eskimo organization, as well as working for Jason,” said Mike Benevides.
The club will immediately begin the process of selecting the next defensive coordinator of the Edmonton Eskimos.
