Stampeders name Walkosky defensive co-ordinator

The Calgary Stampeders promoted Dave Walkosky to defensive co-ordinator Friday.

Walkosky served as Calgary's linebackers coach last season, his first with the CFL club. He replaces Chris Jones, who left the Stampeders this off-season to become the Toronto Argonauts defensive co-ordinator.

"Dave has gained a tremendous amount of coaching experience through his travels," Stampeders head coach/GM John Hufnagel said in a statement. "When I first hired Dave as linebackers coach prior to last season, I felt he would grow into the co-ordinator role and I like the continuity this decision brings to our team."

Prior to joining the Stampeders, Walkosky spent three seasons as the head coach at Tiffin University.
