Fawcett hired by Blue Bombers

It didn’t take Scott Fawcett long to find a new job.
After a rough three years with the Mount Allison Mounties, where he went 1-23 as their head coach, the former Muskie mentor has signed on with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as their special teams co-ordinator.
Fawcett is part of a new wave of coaches that have signed with the Blue Bombers under head coach Jim Daley.
Neither Fawcett nor Daley could not be reached for comment prior to press time today.
Fawcett is no stranger to the CFL. He was part of the Grey Cup-winning Hamilton Tiger Cats in ’99 as a special teams and receivers coach under Ron Lancaster.
He also was a special teams and running backs coach with the Edmonton Eskimos from 1997-99.
Before taking over the helm with the Mounties, Fawcett was an offensive co-ordinator at Rocky Mountain College (Montana) in 2001 after serving a stint as defensive backs and special teams coach with Mount Scenario College (Wisconsin) in 2000.
Fawcett also coached the Muskies and Kenora at different times between 1978-96, winning six championships in all. In 1985, he was the defensive co-ordinator, linebacker, and special teams co-ordinator for the CIS-champion University of Calgary.
Before that (1984), he was a receivers coach and special teams coach for Eastern Washington University, and also was a training camp assistant for the Blue Bombers that same year.
In ’82, Fawcett was the defensive co-ordinator and defensive backs coach for the provincial junior champion Winnipeg Hawkeyes.
