University of Guelph Gryphons head coach Kyle Walters has stepped down and rumour has it that he will be named Special Teams Coordinator with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the CFL, filling their second-last coaching vacancy.
Walters just completed his fourth year as head coach of the Gryphons, a team that he also played for from 1992-1996 as a defensive back. In 1995 and 1996, Walters was named as both an OUA All-Star and CIS All-Canadian for his work on special teams.
Walters also has playing experience as a defensive back with the Hamilton Tiger Cats in the CFL, and in 2003, he was the Ti-Cats Assistant Special Teams Coordinator.
Prior to being named head coach of the Gryphons, Walters was also an Assistant Coach and Defensive Coordinator from 2004-2005.
In his second year as head coach, Walters led the Gryphons to the Yates Cup in 2007 where they were defeated 34-21 by the Western Mustangs.
