Seeking business opportunities

The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced the resignation of defensive assistant Gary Etcheverry just days before the start of training camp.

Vice President of the Riders, Ken Miller, says Etcheverry will be looking for business opportunities instead of coaching football this season. Etcheverry was demoted within the Roughriders coaching staff after losing his defensive coordinator position to Richie Hall.

It took some time for Etcheverry to decide whether to stay with the team but the new head coach Greg Marshall says this was entirely a personal decision and nothing to do with his role in the Roughriders organization.
