There's a lot of buzz going on around the CFL about just what the Toronto Argonauts are doing in their search for a head coach.
Last week, several CFL sources were insisting the Argos were high on hiring former Winnipeg head coach Doug Berry.
And apparently, the Argos certainly left Berry with the impression he was the leading candidate.
Then, suddenly, the job was offered to Montreal offensive co-ordinator Scott Milanovich.
So when Milanovich turned it down, and Toronto's other candidate, George Cortez, signed joined the Buffalo Bills staff, it made sense to assume the Argos would turn back to Berry, right?
Not so fast. Instead, Toronto requested - and was denied - permission to talk to Montreal defensive co-ordinator Tim Burke. But they also requested, and are believed to have received, permission to talk to Hamilton defensive co-ordinator Greg Marshall.
Marshall is also scheduled to interview this week with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and is considered the leading candidate for that job.
No wonder people around the CFL are scratching their heads, trying to figure just who's calling the shots in Toronto - would-be owner David Braley, president Bob Nicholson, general manager Adam Rita, someone else??? - and what exactly the plan is.
