Glen Young – Defensive Coordinator

A Scarborough native and former Argo linebacker, Young returns home to assume the role of defensive coordinator.

A graduate of St. Michael’s College, Young was an Honourable Mention All-American at Syracuse University. He was named to S.U.’s All-Millennium Team and holds a spot on the Syracuse Walk of Fame.

After graduating he moved on to the NFL’s Los Angeles Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Seattle Seahawks and San Diego Chargers, reaching the Super Bowl with San Diego.

After his time south of the border Young returned to Toronto where he spent the 1998-2000 seasons as a linebacker with the Argos. He wore Double Blue as Michael Clemons made the transition from player to head coach.

Young would also make CFL stops as a player with Montreal and Edmonton before retiring after the 2005 season.

After wrapping up his player career, Young would coach at the collegiate level until former Argo teammate Mike O’Shea brought him back to the CFL in 2016.

Young has won three Grey Cups. Two as a player with the Eskimos in 2003 and 2005, then in 2019 as a coach with Winnipeg.
