Anthony Calvillo enters his first season with Toronto Argonauts in 2018 as the club’s Quarterbacks Coach. He has spent the previous three seasons on the offensive coaching staff for the Montreal Alouettes.

Prior to joining the Argonauts staff, Calvillo served three years on the Montreal Alouettes coaching staff, fulfilling a number of roles on the offensive side of the ball.

In 2015, Calvillo was hired as the club’s receivers coach where he led the dynamic duo of S.J. Green and Nik Lewis. On September 5, 2015, the Als offensive coordinator was let go, making way for Calvillo and Ryan Dinwiddie to take over co-offensive coordinator duties. Over the final eight games of the season, the Als offence averaged 341.5 yards of offence per game, despite playing six different players at the quarterback position.

Jim Popp took over head coaching duties for the Alouettes in 2016 and promptly named Calvillo the team’s offensive coordinator. On September 9, 2016, Calvillo once again underwent a position change, when Popp stepped down as head coach to focus on general manager duties. Offensive advisor Jacques Chapdelaine was named head coach and took over play calling duties from Calvillo, who became the team’s quarterback coach.

In 11 games as the team’s play caller, Calvillo helped the Alouettes average 329.4 yards and 22 points per game despite missing perennial East All-Star receiver SJ Green due to injury. Under his tutelage, three Als receivers still managed to produce over 850 receiving yards in 2016.

In 2017, Calvillo was announced as the Alouettes quarterback coach.
