I wonder if this opens the door for a return by Eric? This is pretty fantastic news either way.
I really have to think that it wasn’t the losing that brought about the decision to can Lewis as much as it was the fact that Lewis was becoming a PR nightmare. Getting rid of a megalomaniacal bully like Lewis is a great first step and if there was a time to do it it had to be now – they’re in Halifax for four weeks which means a new coach has plenty of practice time (relatively speaking) to try to put in some sort of offense. There is also the chance to swoop in and get a CBA coach (and CBA players) if need be, but I have to think that it’ll be a local AUS or ACAA coach like Les Berry who will get the offer for the year.
