Charlie Eger named REDBLACKS Running Backs Coach

The Ottawa REDBLACKS today announced that Charlie Eger has been hired as the team’s Running Backs Coach.

Eger arrives in Ottawa with extensive coaching experience at the collegiate level, most recently serving as the Interim Offensive Coordinator at Clarion University. Prior to that, Eger spent six seasons as an assistant coach at Seton Hill University, working as the offensive coordinator while also coaching the offensive line (2014-17) and serving as recruiting coordinator.  The Seton Hill offense was strong under Eger, consistently ranking among the best units in the conference and in some instances the nation.

“Charlie has coached the offensive system at training camp the past two years in Winnipeg and has had an outstanding career in coaching,” said REDBLACKS Head Coach Paul LaPolice. “Our players will enjoy working with him and we are excited to add a coach of his caliber to the REDBLACKS staff.”

Eger has also been involved with professional teams during his career.  He was a guest coach with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and has helped out at OTAs with the St. Louis Rams and Pittsburgh Steelers.
