Scout Miles Gorrell leaving the Redblacks

One of the very first football-operations staffers with the Ottawa Redblacks is leaving the organization.

Miles Gorrell, a scout hired by the Redblacks in March 2013, is departing “to pursue other opportunities,” the Canadian Football League club announced Thursday.

Gorrell previously served as a scout for the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts. A former University of Ottawa Gee-Gees offensive lineman, he played 19 CFL seasons with the Calgary Stampeders, Ottawa Rough Riders, Montreal Alouettes, Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2013.

Gorrell’s departure follows the Redblacks’ announcement that the contracts of assistant coaches Derek Oswalt, Ike Charlton, Travis Moore and Bryan Chiu would not be renewed and the hiring of Noel Thorpe as defensive co-ordinator.
