Published: Thursday, Dec 5th 2019, 5:12pm
According to TSN’s Dave Naylor, the Riders are finalizing a deal to bring Jason Maas in as the new offensive coordinator for the Roughriders in 2020.
As mentioned in a previous article, Jason Maas has a history of putting together potent offenses that thrives through the air. Over his 5 years as an offensive coordinator, his teams have averaged over 5700 yards passing and 46 offensive touchdowns per year. This is a huge improvement over Stephen McAdoo’s 4600 passing yards and 36.7 yards.
Over their careers, Jason Maas’ worst statistical year (2019 – 5286 passing yards and 37 touchdowns) is still higher than McAdoo’s average year (4626 passing yards and 36.7 touchdowns).
Jason Maas’ history as offensive coordinator:
2015: 44 offensive touchdowns and 5803 passing yards
2016: 53 offensive touchdowns and 5922 passing yards
2017: 50 offensive touchdowns and 5972 passing yards
2018: 50 offensive touchdowns and 5606 passing yards
2019: 37 offensive touchdowns and 5286 passing yards
Average: 46.8 offensive touchdowns and 5717.8 passing yards
Let’s compare those to Stephen McAdoo as an offensive coordinator from 2014-2019
2014: 40 offensive touchdowns and 5286 passing yards
2015: 33 offensive touchdowns and 3436 passing yards
2016: 29 offensive touchdowns and 5016 passing yards
2017: 49 offensive touchdowns and 5282 passing yards
2018: 25 offensive touchdowns and 3971 passing yards
2019: 44 offensive touchdowns and 4769 passing yards
Average: 36.7 offensive touchdowns and 4626.7 passing yards
Suffice to say, the Roughriders offense will look far different as we head into a Grey Cup year in Saskatchewan.
