According to The Canadian Press on Monday, the British Columbia Lions have named former Calgary Stampeders quarterback Khari Jones as their offensive co-ordinator.

Jones has prior coaching experience in the Canadian Football League with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Saskatchewan Roughriders. He was the Tiger-Cats offensive co-ordinator in 2011 and was the quarterbacks coach for the Roughriders the last two seasons. Jones takes over from Jacques Chapdelaine who had been with the Lions as an assistant coach since 2007.

As a quarterback, Jones was the CFL's most outstanding player in 2001 while with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and also spent a season with the Stampeders in 2004. From 1997-2007, Jones also played for the British Columbia Lions, Edmonton Eskimos and Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Jones will be working closely with quarterback Travis Lulay, the 2011 CFL most outstanding player and most valuable player in the Grey Cup. Last season, the Lions had 504 points, the fourth most in the CFL. The Lions meanwhile lost 29-25 to the Roughriders in the western semi-final.
