Joe Paopao returns to Ottawa with REDBLACKS coaching staff

The Ottawa REDBLACKS announced Monday the addition of a familiar face to the coaching staff, with Joe Paopao being named Running Backs Coach.

Paopao is no stranger to Ottawa, having previously played quarterback for the Ottawa Rough Riders (1987) before serving as head coach of the Ottawa Renegades from 2002-2005.


“We feel very fortunate to add Joe to our coaching staff,” said REDBLACKS Head Coach Rick Campbell. “His wealth of knowledge and experience coaching and playing in the CFL will be a huge asset to our offence.”

With the addition of Paopao, here are the offensive coaching positions heading into the 2019 season:

Winston October – Receivers Coach
Beau Walker – Quarterbacks Coach
John McDonell – Offensive Line Coach
Joe Paopao – Running Backs Coach
