Direct from Al's media. Montreal, February 24, 2014 - Montreal Alouettes owner Bob Wetenhall is pleased to announce Tom Higgins as his selection to be the 21st Head Coach of the Football Club.

"As I've expressed to the media in recent weeks, I wanted to continue with the formula which has brought us the success we've enjoyed these past 17 years; having a full-time Head Coach and a full-time General Manager to fill each of these positions," declared Wetenhall. "The criteria we established for our next head coach was to find an individual familiar with the CFL; someone with success in that position and a background as a position coach. In addition, we sought an individual with a record for molding and delivering championship teams. In Tom's seven years as a head coach he won three Division Championships along with a Grey Cup, and twice earned recognition as the CFL's Coach of the Year. His head coaching record of 72-53-1 speaks for itself. We welcome Tom to the Alouettes family."

Tom Higgins is entering his 23rd season as a CFL coach with additional years as an administrator. He began his CFL coaching career in 1985 as an assistant with the Calgary Stampeders. Prior to joining the Stampeders, he served three years on the coaching staff at the University of Calgary, working for Canadian Football Hall of Fame coach Peter Connellan and helping the Dinos to the 1983 Vanier Cup.

In 1994, Higgins moved to the Edmonton Eskimos as Assistant General Manager; assuming the title of General Manager and COO in 1997. In 2001, he began a four-year tenure in the dual capacity of Eskimos' General Manager and Head Coach. In 2005, he returned to Calgary as the Stampeders' Head Coach, a position he held for three seasons. In 2008, Tom joined the CFL head office as Director of Officiating, stepping down from the post after the 2013 season.

Higgins played as a linebacker and defensive tackle at North Carolina State from 1973-75, before playing professionally with the Stampeders, Buffalo Bills and Saskatchewan Roughriders prior to launching his coaching career. He was an all-ACC selection at defensive tackle in 1975, and was also a four-year member of the Wolfpack wrestling team, winning the ACC heavyweight championship in 1976.

"Tom is highly respected throughout the CFL and across Canada," said Mark Weightman, President and CEO of the Alouettes. "He is known as a great teacher, and as someone who holds himself to the same high standards he does his players. His body of work as a player, Head Coach, GM and senior league official reflects his contribution to the CFL. Tom has worked with and tutored many of the CFL's finest quarterbacks - Doug Flutie, Henry Burris and Ricky Ray to mention a few. His expertise will be invaluable in the development of Troy Smith and Tanner Marsh."

Time constraints and personal obligations preclude staging a formal press conference. To accommodate the Montreal media, a conference call introducing Tom Higgins will be conducted Tuesday, February 25 at 11:00 a.m. Joining Tom Higgins on the call will be Bob Wetenhall, Andrew Wetenhall, and Mark Weightman.

Larry Taylor is back with the Alouettes. From Al's media.

Montreal, February 25, 2014 - The Montreal Alouettes announced on Tuesday that return specialist Larry Taylor is coming back to where his CFL career started, as the club has acquired the speedster from the Calgary Stampeders as well their fifth-round draft pick in the 2014 CFL Canadian Draft and their conditional fourth-round pick in 2015 in exchange for Montreal's fifth-round draft pick in the 2014 CFL Canadian Draft and their conditional third-round pick in 2015.

Taylor (5'6'', 181 lbs.) , who also lines up as a receiver, returns to Montreal after spending the last three seasons in Calgary. The 28-year-old began his professional career with the Alouettes in 2008, earning the CFL's Special Teams Player of the Year Award the following season. He finished the 2009 season with 1,971 combined yards, the most in the CFL, while also scoring three touchdowns.

"We welcome Larry back into the nest. Having obtained another one of our originals and one of the most exciting players in the CFL gives us great competition and depth at the WR and Returner positions," said Alouettes General Manager Jim Popp.

Last year, the Fort Lauderdale, FL native returned 53 kickoffs for gains of 1,147 yards and 82 punts for gains of 615 yards, earning a spot on the West Division All-Star team.

From Al's media. Alouettes sign CB/KR Mike Edwards

Montreal, February 27, 2014 - The Montreal Alouettes announced on Thursday the signing of import cornerback and return specialist Mike Edwards to a two-year deal with the club.

Edwards (5'9'', 189 lbs.) participated in the 2013 NFL Combine before signing with the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent last year, taking part in the team's training camp.

Collegiately, the Cleveland, OH native played two seasons with the Rainbow Warriors at the University of Hawaii after transferring from the Coffeyville Community College Ravens in 2010.

In his two years with the Rainbow Warriors in 2011 and 2012, Edwards registered 86 tackles, three interceptions, and returned three kickoffs for touchdowns-two of which went for over 100 yards in a single season.

"Mike brings his dual ability to the Alouettes," said Alouettes General Manager Jim Popp. "He is a superb bump-and-run corner and has had an outstanding career as a returner in college.  We welcome Mike to the nest."

The 22-year-old also saw time as a running back and wide receiver at Hawaii, in addition to returning kicks on special teams. In 2012, he led all college football players south of the border in total kickoff return yards with 1,215, maintaining a 30.4 yard average per return. He was also named the team MVP that year. While at the University of Hawaii, Edwards was coached by former Alouettes' defensive backs coach Daronte' Jones. " Charles Rooke

Alouettes ink NFL Pro Bowl receiver Chad Johnson

Montreal, April 17, 2014 - The Montreal Alouettes announced on Thursday that the club has signed Pro Bowl receiver Chad Johnson to a two-year, following the player's presence at the team's mini-camp in Vero Beach, FL.

Johnson (6'1", 188 lbs.) joins the Alouettes after spending 11 seasons in the NFL, including the first ten with the Cincinnati Bengals. The elite receiver amassed 11,059 receiving yards, which ranks him 30th on the NFL all-time list. He also caught 766 passes while scoring 67 receiving touchdowns. He averaged 14.4 yards per catch in his 166 career games played South of the border.

"Chad Johnson did an outstanding job the last three days. As we added him into the mix, it was to see how he communicated with the players, how he held himself, the way he physically held up, his true interest in coming to the CFL. It was a total evaluation so that it's a good fit. He was very happy and very excited to be on the field again and we are happy to welcome him to the Alouettes," said Montreal's General Manager Jim Popp of the team's newest member.

Johnson cracked 1,000 receiving yards with Cincinnati in seven out of eight seasons from 2002 through 2009. He also snagged eight or more touchdown receptions in five separate occasions during his tenure with the Bengals.

Drafted in the second round (36th overall) by Cincinnati from Oregon State University, the Miami, Florida native reached the Pro Bowl five straight years from 2003-2007 and again in 2009 with the Bengals.

The now 36-year-old last played in 2011 with New England, where he made 15 catches for 276 yards and a touchdown. He caught one pass in Super Bowl XLVI for 21 yards as New England lost 21-17 to the New York Giants. Most recently he took part in the Miami Dolphins training camp in 2012.

An exciting 2014 season in store for Alouettes fans!

Montreal, May 2, 2014 -  Less than one month before the start of training camp, the Alouettes unveiled what fans can expect this upcoming season at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium, during a special fan event held at La Station des Sports in downtown Montreal on Friday night.

Alouettes President and CEO Mark Weightman promised that the organization will be more fan-oriented than ever in 2014, after surveying, exchanging with, and listening to its loyal supporters during this past off-season.

Quarterback Troy Smith and coach André Bolduc were also on-hand to address the fans, offering a sneak peek at what to expect on the field in 2014.

Here's what fans can expect in 2014:

AN ENHANCED FAN EXPERIENCE
• Fans can expect even more detailed service during this upcoming season. Thanks to a new partnership deal with Admission, season ticket holders can now transfer their tickets via email.

• The free STM shuttle will be taking a new route, making getting to the stadium easier than ever for fans while remaining the most eco-friendly way to get to an Alouettes game.

• With the help of partner Radio Circulation 730AM, it will now be even easier to find out what the best way to get the stadium is while driving.

• A new parking service will be offered to fans via MaPlace.ca, allowing parking spaces around the stadium to be reserved online in advance.

• Just in time for training camp, the Alouettes will launch version 2.0 of their mobile app, which was a huge success with Alouettes fans last year after its initial launch. Information about accessing the stadium will now just be a click away.

AN UNCOMPARABLE GAME-DAY EXPERIENCE
• In collaboration with Budweiser and le Dindon du Québec, the West End Zone at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium will become a party zone this summer. The area will be transformed into a fan zone, allowing supporters to converge to eat and drink in an electric atmosphere as soon as the doors open. The party will keep going every game day until the last whistle.

• During the summer, all Alouettes home games will be played on Friday nights following feedback from Alouettes fans.

• A variety of new items will be available at concession stands in-stadium this year, including pulled pork sandwiches, an exclusive Alouettes turkey leg recipe, as well new fresh pizzas from Pizza Pizza.

• Thanks to a new partnership with Labatt Breweries, the variety of beers offered to fans at Alouettes games will see a serious upgrade. In addition to being served Budweiser and Bud Light everywhere in the stadium, fans will also have access to Bud Crown, Corona and Stella Artois.

• The Alouettes cheerleaders will have a new look in 2014, wearing new uniforms on the sidelines. Plus, fans won't want to miss their 2014 calendar, a swimsuit shoot which took place in the Dominican Republic and will be available as of June 5.

• La Station des Sports becomes the official sports bar for Alouettes post-game parties. On their way down from the mountain, all Alouettes fans are invited to join forces at La Station des Sports to take advantage of many specials while celebrating Alouettes victorys.

• One thing won't change in 2014 however, and that's the electric atmosphere at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium during Alouettes' home games.
 
MANY SPECIAL ACTIVITIES
• On July 11, the Alouettes will be donning their white uniforms at home and all fans are invited to do the same as the team hosts its first-ever white-out.

• For the first time in its history, the Canadian Football Hall of Fame game will be played in Montreal on September 21. The timing couldn't be better, as former Alouettes Ben Cahoon and Uzooma Okeke will be enshrined on that day, as well as Montrealer and former Alouettes player Wally Buono, who has been selected as a builder.

• On October 13, the Alouettes will honour one of their greatest players in history in Anthony Calvillo, who announced a well-deserved retirement this past winter. No one will want to miss this one.

• The 50th TELUS Vanier Cup game will be played at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium on Saturday, November 29. Alouettes season ticket holders and Montrealers have already confirmed their interest in what will be a must-see football happening.

• This season will also mark the beginning of a new chapter in the Montreal-Ottawa rivalry as the REDBLACKS make their CFL debut this summer.

• La Station des Sports will host viewing parties all season for Alouettes away games.

AN EXCITING SEASON ON THE FIELD
• On the field, new head coach Tom Higgins, who has been named CFL Coach of the year twice, takes the reins of the team. He will have a very competitive team at his disposal which has been assembled by General Manager Jim Popp, the team's architect since its return in the CFL in 1996.

• Troy Smith finished the season as the starting quarterback and will start where he left of last season at the start of 2014.

• The Alouettes kept most of the players who were eligible for free agency this past off-season. The stability surrounding the team will be a great asset to the team as it sets its sight on the 102nd Grey Cup.

• Star players Jamel Richardson and Brandon Whitaker are healthy and look forward to proving to everyone that they are capable of having seasons like they accustomed Alouettes fans to.

• The Alouettes added star receiver Chad Johnson to their roster. After a glorious 11-season NFL career, he showed during the Alouettes mini-camp that he is still a very capable receiver. He can't wait to step back on the field and discover his new adoptive city.

The Alouettes new signature is "la Force du nombre". The organization is anxious to greet all of its fans, young and old, this upcoming season which should be exciting at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium. Let the action begin!
