Offensive Line Coach
Steve McAdoo joined the Toronto Argonauts as Offensive Line Coach in 2010, creating a tight knit group of linemen and leading the emergence of a disciplined and intense unit. In three seasons with the Double Blue, three of his players have been named East Division All-Stars and two have earned All CFL accolades. His line was responsible for protecting QB Ricky Ray en route to the club’s 100th Grey Cup championship in 2012.
Entering his fourth season with the Argos, Steve McAdoo has 14 years of coaching experience at the college and professional levels under his belt. McAdoo is well known for his four seasons with the Montreal Alouettes where he served as Offensive Line/Running Backs coach from 2003-2005 and Co-Offensive Coordinator/Offensive Line and Running Backs in 2006. While in Montreal, McAdoo coached the offensive line and running backs to all-star teams every year. During that span, Montreal played in three Grey Cup championships.
Prior to joining the Alouettes, McAdoo spent the 1999-2002 seasons at Tennessee Tech University as its Offensive Line and Tight Ends Coach. During his tenure, McAdoo coached five All-Conference players, four All-Americans and two NFL players. McAdoo's offensive line and tight ends guided Tennessee Tech to two Top 25 rankings. McAdoo began his coaching career in 1996 at his Alma Mater Middle Tennessee State University where he coached the tight ends. During his time at MTSU, McAdoo's players achieved All-Conference and All-American honours.
Prior to coaching, McAdoo spent 1989-1992 as an offensive lineman at MTSU. During his four years, he was named a three-time All-American & three-time All Conference. He also led his team to three Conference championships and four play-off appearances. After signing as a free agent in 1993 with the Cleveland Browns, McAdoo spent the 1994 and 1995 seasons playing for the CFL’s now-defunct Shreveport Pirates before an injury brought his playing career to an end.
McAdoo resigned his post as Co-Offensive Coordinator of the Alouettes in 2007 to become the Vice President of a Nashville, Tennessee-based non-profit organization. McAdoo and his wife Kacey have been married seven years and currently reside in Nashville, Tennessee.
