COREY MACE – Defensive Coordinator

Corey Mace joined the Argos on January 6, 2022, taking over the role as defensive coordinator.

The Vancouver B.C. native headed east after spending the previous 12 years with the Calgary Stampeders; six years as a player, followed by six years as their defensive line coach.

After NCAA stops at Polomar College and the University of Wyoming, Mace signed with the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2007, the same year the Winnipeg Blue Bombers selected him in the second round of the CFL Draft.

While the defensive tackle was spending three years with the Bills, his CFL rights were traded three times. Once to Hamilton, then to the Argos in exchange for receiver Arland Bruce III, then to Calgary for linebacker Tristan Black.

Mace signed with the Stampeders in 2010 and played a total of 40 games in red and white.

He retired after missing the entire 2015 season with an injury, immediately joining Calgary’s coaching ranks as the defensive line coach, a position he held until signing with the Argos.

Mace won the 2014 Grey Cup as a player, then lifted the trophy again in 2018 as a coach. He would win his third Grey Cup in 2022, his first year in the role of defensive coordinator.
