Ed Philion is back in the CFL.

The veteran defensive lineman joined the Toronto Argonauts as a defensive line coach Friday. The CFL club also hired Eddie Brown as its defensive backs coach.

Philion appeared in 127 career games with the Montreal Alouettes, and was a four-time CFL all-star. He played in five Grey Cup games, winning in 2002. Before joining the Alouettes in ‘99 Philion spent time with the NFL’s Buffalo Bills.

Philion played for Argos defensive co-ordinator Chris Jones in Montreal from 2002 to ‘06 and later served as a guest coach with Calgary in 2010 when Jones was with the Stampeders.

Brown joins the Argos after spending six years as a coach at Grand Valley State University. He played 13 seasons in the Arena Football League as a defensive back-receiver, winning three Arena Bowl championships with the Tampa Bay Storm (1991, ‘93 and ‘95).
