CFL: 9th season
Stamps: 2nd season
Gibson is entering his ninth season in the CFL and second with the Stampeders. This season will be Gibson’s first as the team’s offensive line coach.
In 2011, Gibson was Calgary’s running backs coach, helping the club finish second in rushing yards. Gibson worked with Jon Cornish, Joffrey Reynolds and LaMarcus Coker, among others, as the club established a solid ground game throughout the year. The club was second in rushing yards (2,244) and second in yards per carry (6.2).
Prior to joining the Stampeders, Gibson spent two seasons with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as offensive coordinator. In his second year with Hamilton, Gibson also held the title of running backs coach. The Tiger-Cats offence made steady progress under Gibson and, in 2010, Kevin Glenn set a franchise record for touchdown passes and became only the second Hamilton pivot to throw for more than 5,000 yards in a season.
Before his two-season stint in Hamilton, Gibson spent two seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders as assistant head coach and offensive line coach and a total of three seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers — two as the offensive coordinator and one as offensive line coach.
Gibson’s first taste of the CFL came in 1995 when he was a guest coach with the B.C. Lions. He was hired as Winnipeg’s offensive line coach in 2001, a season in which the Bombers went 14-4 and played in the Grey Cup game. He earned a Grey Cup ring as part of Saskatchewan’s coaching staff in 2007.
After completing his playing career at Western Maryland College in 1978, Gibson began his coaching career at Western Maryland as a graduate assistant. In 1980, he was hired as offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator for Cornell University. Gibson joined Boston University in 1982 and served as the Terriers' offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for six seasons.
Following one season at Rice University as assistant athletic director and recruiting coordinator, he went to Temple and was Temple University’s offensive line coach for four years. He then joined Colgate University, where he served as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for two years.
He was offensive tackles/tight ends and special teams coach at Rutgers University for four seasons before joining the Blue Bombers for the 2001 season. After three seasons at the University of Louisiana as offensive line coach, he returned to the Bombers in 2005.
