There's a new man in charge of the Saskatchewan Roughriders offense.
The team announced on Monday that George Cortez has been hired as their new offensive coordinator, taking over for Bob Dyce who did the job last season.
The move comes as a bit of a surprise, as head coach Corey Chamblin had previously vouched for Dyce, saying that he would return as the offensive coordinator, but he admits that this was too good of an opportunity to pass up.
The Mike Sinclair era is already over in Saskatchewan, and you can thank Marc Trestman for the move.
Just days after Trestman was named the head coach of the Chicago Bears, Sinclair has been named the team's assistant defensive line coach.

It's official...Craig Dickenson is now a member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The Winnipeg Sun's Kirk Penton first reported the news yesterday, after the Saskatchewan Roughriders announced that their special teams coordinator had resigned from his post.
"The biggest thing is his commitment to being here in the off season as much as we need, just didn't live up to his lifestyle," said general manager Brendan Taman on Thursday. "He decided it probably wasn't in his best interest to stay."
Roughriders announced Thursday morning that special teams coordinator Craig Dickenson has resigned.
“My decision to resign is based on off-season commitments I have made that I intend to honour and also to a conflict of schedule which could not be worked out,” Dickenson said in a written statement released by the Riders.
He made no mention of what those commitments might be, but general manager Brendan Taman did shed some light on the situation.
