Offensive Coordinator/Receivers Coach
Tommy Condell enters his second season with the Toronto Argonauts in 2018 as the club’s Offensive Coordinator/Receivers Coach. He joined the Argos staff in 2017 as Receivers Coach.
Prior to the joining the Argonauts staff, Condell served as the Offensive Coordinator and Receivers Coach of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (2013-15). In three seasons with the team, Hamilton’s offence ranked at or near the top of the league in a number of significant offensive statistical categories.
In 2015, the Tiger-Cats had the CFL’s top ranked passing offence and scored the second-most points on offence (438) despite starting four different quarterbacks due to injury. With a passing efficiency rating of 102.5%, Hamilton’s offence accumulated the league’s second-most yards (5,148) and touchdowns (tie-32) through the air, while adding the third highest completion percentage (68.0%) with the second-least interceptions (14) of any team.
During his second season with the Tabbies, Condell’s offence ranked fourth in points (417), first downs (342) and yards per game (330.8), and second in passing yards (4854), passes completed (402) and completion percentage (64.6%). In his first year in Hamilton, Condell guided the offence to top-three finishes in several key offensive categories, including ranking second in most first downs (397) and average yards per game (373.1).
Before arriving in Hamilton, Condell spent three years at Cornell alongside Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach Kent Austin as Assistant Head Coach and Wide Receivers Coach. Under Condell’s watch, Cornell’s offence set a school record by scoring at least 24 points in eight consecutive games, while establishing 11 total new school records, including passing yards and points scored. Also during his tenure, Cornell receivers were named to the first and second All-Ivy team in both 2011 and 2012. In 2011, receiver Shane Savage set Big Red single-season records with 65 receptions for 1,080 receiving yards.
Prior to joining Cornell’s staff, Condell spent three seasons as Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach at Southeastern Louisiana, and served as acting head coach during the final six weeks of the 2008 season.
Condell also has significant CFL experience, with stints as Offensive Coordinator with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (2006), Quarterbacks and Receivers Coach with the Ottawa Renegades (2004-05), and Special Teams Coordinator with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (1997).
Throughout his coaching career, Condell has overseen every position on offence, with stints at Louisiana-Monroe, Stephen F. Austin, McNeese State, Hamilton College and Illionis Wesleyan, including a stop with the Albany Firebirds of the Arena Football League.
In addition to his vast coaching experience, he served as a personnel assistant to the NFL Europe draft in 1998. Condell played receiver at Lock Haven University and Cortland State, helping the school capture a pair of ECAC titles in 1992 and 1993.
