Jarious Jackson – Offensive Coordinator & Quarterbacks Coach

A member of the 2012 Grey Cup champions as a player, Jackson returns to Toronto in a coaching capacity, assuming the role of offensive coordinator.

Jackson starred at Notre Dame, where he set several single-season passing records, including the yardage mark set by former Argo Joe Theismann. The quarterback then spent over a decade playing pro, beginning in the NFL with Denver and then with Barcelona in NFL Europe before wrapping up his career in the CFL with eight seasons in B.C and a year in Double Blue.

His highlight in Toronto was throwing a touchdown pass to Dontrelle Inman in the 100th Grey Cup game, a win over Calgary.

The next season Jackson began his coaching career in B.C., with subsequent stops in Edmonton and Saskatchewan before returning to the Lions where he’s spent the previous two seasons as their offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

The native of Tupelo, Mississippi has won four Grey Cups; as a player with the Lions in 2006 and 2011, then the 2012 championship with Toronto. He’d add a ring as a coach with Edmonton in 2015.
