CFL: 4th season
Stamps: 4th season
Dickenson returns for his fourth season with the Stampeders and second as the team’s offensive coordinator.
In 2011, Dickenson oversaw a Stamps offence that was tied for second-most points scored in 2011 with 511. Calgary also had the second-most first downs (402) and finished second in net yards of offence (6,954) and net yards of rushing (2,244). The offence produced two CFL all-stars in lineman Dimitri Tsoumpas and receiver Nik Lewis.
In his first season as a coach (2009), Dickenson tutored the Stampeders running backs and helped Joffrey Reynolds claim the CFL rushing crown. In 2010 his role expanded, he was named quarterbacks coach, called offensive plays on game days and was heavily involved in game planning.
During the 2010 campaign, the Stamps’ offence led the Canadian Football League in points scored (626), yards of offence (7,769), most first downs (445) and most rushing yards (2,618) while Stamps quarterback Henry Burris was voted the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player.
Dickenson joined the coaching staff after an outstanding 13-year professional playing career. He spent 11 of his 13 seasons in the Canadian Football League, six of those with the Stampeders (1996-2000 and 2008).
A potent combination of intelligence, athletic ability and courage, Dickenson holds a number of CFL passing records and was named the league’s Most Outstanding Player in 2000 after throwing for 4,636 yards, 36 touchdowns and only six interceptions while guiding the Stampeders to a 12-5-1 record.
After spending two seasons in the National Football League — with San Diego in 2001 and with Seattle, Miami and Detroit in 2002 — Dickenson returned to Canada and signed with the BC Lions, where he was reunited with former Stampeders boss Wally Buono. After five seasons with the Leos, including a 2005 campaign in which he established league records for highest completion percentage and quarterback rating in a single season, and an MVP performance in the 2006 Grey Cup, Dickenson returned to Calgary in 2008 for what proved to be his final season.
Dickenson joined the Stampeders in 1996 after a stellar career at the University of Montana. He was a three-time conference MVP with the Grizzlies and in 1995 led the nation in passing while guiding Montana to the NCAA Division 1-AA national title.
Dave, his wife Tammy and children Avery and Cooper live in Calgary year round.
