STAMPEDERS MOURN THE DEATH OF CHUCK McMANN
It is with great sadness the Calgary Stampeders have learned of the death of former assistant coach Chuck McMann at the age of 70.
McMann, whose career as a player and coach in the Canadian Football League stretched over five different decades, was part of Calgary’s staff under Wally Buono from 1992 to 2000 and was a member of the Stampeders’ Grey Cup-championship teams in 1992 and 1998.
“I am deeply saddened to hear of Chuck’s passing,” said Stampeders president and general John Hufnagel, who served for five years with McMann on Buono’s staff. “He was a great man and a great coach and he will be sorely missed. My condolences to Chuck’s wife Marg and the family for their loss.”
In addition to his time with the Stamps, McMann was on the BC Lions coaching staff from 2008-15. He was a head coach at the university level with Waterloo and McGill.
