Greg Mohns, who coached the British Columbia Lions from 1998-2000, died today of throat cancer.
Mohns was very successful during his time as the Lions’ bench boss where he went 22-12 over that period of time.
He also worked as an assistant coach at Oklahoma State and Arizona State in the National Collegiate Athletic Association, and as a scout for the Kansas City Chiefs before joining the Canadian Football League in 1991.
From there, Mohns worked as a director of player personnel for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Memphis Mad Dogs before joining the Toronto Argonauts as their assistant general manager in 1996.
Mohns also had a very tight working relationship with Adam Rita, who hired him as the Lions head coach almost a decade ago. At the time of his death, he was the director of player personnel of the Omaha Knighthawks of the United Football League.
