Hamilton Tiger-Cats Coaching Shakeup: Condell Departs, Milanovich Steps Up

In a significant coaching change, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have announced that the club and assistant head coach and offensive coordinator Tommy Condell have mutually agreed to part ways. This decision marks the end of a seven-year relationship between Condell and the Ticats, filled with accomplishments, including four Eastern Division championship titles.

Orlondo Steinauer, the president of football operations and head coach of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, expressed his gratitude towards Condell, saying,

“Tommy is someone I have known since 2013. He is an exceptional man whose work ethic and creativity are second to none. His history with Hamilton as a coordinator and development of quarterbacks is undeniably impressive.”

Condell, originally from Utica, N.Y., first joined Hamilton in 2013 as the offensive coordinator, resigning in 2016 for family reasons. After a year off from football and a stint with the Toronto Argonauts as a receivers coach, he rejoined the Ticats in 2019 and was named the assistant head coach in 2022.

Despite facing challenges with three different starting quarterbacks this season and ranking low in several offensive categories, Condell’s legacy with the Ticats includes a 15-3 regular season record in 2019.

Scott Milanovich Takes Over

Filling the void left by Condell’s departure, senior assistant coach Scott Milanovich will take over the club’s play-calling duties. A seasoned coach with over 20 years of experience, Milanovich has had a remarkable CFL career with the Calgary Stampeders, Montreal Alouettes, and Toronto Argonauts.

Milanovich is a three-time Grey Cup Champion and was named the CFL’s Coach of the Year in 2012. His resume also boasts time as a quarterbacks coach in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Steinauer acknowledged Milanovich’s proficiency, recognizing him as a three-time Grey Cup Champion and emphasizing his rich history in Canadian football.

The Tiger-Cats, currently with a record of 3-5, are on a Week 10 bye and will return to the field in Week 11, hosting the Edmonton Elks on Thursday, August 17. The coaching transition will undoubtedly be a central storyline as Hamilton seeks to improve their standings in the season’s second half.

Fans and analysts alike will be watching closely to see how Milanovich, a native of Butler, Pennsylvania, impacts the Ticats’ offensive strategy. His rich CFL background and recent NFL experience will undoubtedly bring fresh insights to Hamilton’s game plan.

This coaching shakeup is a significant development in the Hamilton Tiger-Cats‘ season, reflecting a dedication to growth and excellence within the organization. As the Tiger-Cats bid farewell to Condell and welcome the Milanovich era, the focus shifts to the field and the promising second half of the CFL season.
