University of Regina Rams head coach Steve Bryce announced Wednesday that the team has added former All-Canadian and Hec Crighton Trophy recipient Noah Picton to its staff as a quarterbacks coach.
Picton was one of the most prolific quarterbacks in Canadian university football history over his time with the Rams, including winning the Hec Crighton Trophy in 2016 as the national player of the year. He's the all-time U SPORTS leader with 11,494 passing yards, the Canada West all-time leader with 1235 completions, and ranks second in Canada West and school history with 71 touchdown passes.
"We're extremely happy to be able to add Noah, who's obviously been such a big part of this program for the past seven seasons," Bryce said. "He set such a great example as a player and a leader during his time with the Rams, and he's the perfect guy for our group of young, talented quarterbacks to learn from."
Besides his U SPORTS experience, Picton also participated in three training camps with CFL teams including in 2018 and 2019 with the Toronto Argonauts. He was also with the Saskatchewan Roughriders during their 2015 camp as part of the CFL's Canadian quarterback internship program.
Picton, who received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the U of R in the spring, now works at PFM Capital Inc. in Regina as a compliance and governance analyst.
