Riders promote Jason Shivers to DC

The Riders made it official today, hiring Jason Shivers as the defensive coordinator. Shivers has been coaching in the CFL since 2013, all of which has been spent along side Chris Jones. This includes the past 5 years as Jones’ defensive backs coach.
Shivers was officially interviewed for the position over the weekend, but it has been expected for some time that the Riders would promote him to defensive coordinator.
There is no word yet on wether Shivers will retain his current position of Defensive Backs coach, although the departure of Chris Jones and promotion of Dickenson/Shivers has left 1 spot available under the new coaching salary cap.
