Former UH running back Alex Green is set to rejoin the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL.
“He was in camp with us,” said June Jones, who had joined the Tiger-Cats a month ago as offensive coordinator and was promoted to head coach soon after. “I said, ‘sign him back. I think he already knows what we’re doing and everything.'”
Jones said there is a possibility Green might be activated for this weekend’s game against Saskatchewan.
This will be the first time Jones has coached Green, who signed with UH in 2009. Jones’ last UH season was 2007. But Jones has followed Green’s career, saying, “I totally liked him. He’s one of those perfect backs for us.”
