Linebackers Coach

Quick is back in Toronto as Linebackers Coach for 2018 after serving under the same capacity for the team in 2010 and 2011. With over 35 years of coaching experience in college and professional football, including 16 years as a University Head Coach, he brings a vast amount of football knowledge to the team.

Previous to joining the Argos, Quick was Linebackers Coach for the Montreal Alouettes the last two seasons, as well as in 2014. In 2014, he coached current Argos linebacker Bear Woods amassed a total of 89 defensive tackles in only 12 games, earning the nod as the East Division’s Most Outstanding Defensive Player.

Quick served as Defensive Coordinator for the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2015 and under Quick’s tutelage, rookie linebacker Jeff Knox Jr. earned the team’s selection for Most Outstanding Rookie, posting the second-most defensive tackles in the CFL with 114.

Two years in Toronto as Linebackers Coach (2010 and 2011) were preceded by his third stint as a Head Coach. From 2003-2008, Quick was at the helm of the Concord University’s football program. In 2004, Quick led Concord to its first winning record against conference opponents since 1993. During his time as Head Coach, the Mountain Lions had 14 First Team All-WVIAC selections. Under Quick’s guidance Darryl Wilson (140 – 2005) and Tank Tunstelle (131 – 2007) set the two highest single-season totals for tackles and Terrence Lee recorded the second and third-highest single-season sack totals in school history.

Quick took his first head coaching gig at the University of Chicago where he coached from 1989-1993 and then coached the St. Norbert Green Knights from 1994-1998. The former Center played college football at Baldwin-Wallace in Berea, Ohio.
