Running Backs Coach
CFL: 1st season
Stamps: 12th season

Bolduc is in his first season with the Stampeders after 10 years with the Montreal Alouettes and one with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

In 2023, Bolduc was running backs coach and run-game coordinator with the Roughriders. Tailback Jamal Morrow accumulated 1,228 yards from scrimmage and had a pair of 100-yard rushing performances while rookie Thomas Bertrand-Hudon averaged 7.4 yards per carry.

Bolduc spent a decade with the Alouettes including three seasons as running backs coach and three years with the dual roles of running backs coach and assistant head coach. Under his guidance in 2021, Alouettes running back William Stanback led the league with 1,176 rushing yards and was named the East Division’s Most Outstanding Player. The Alouettes also led the league with a team total of 2,023 rushing yards, 347 more than the second-best club in that category.

Over his time in Montreal, he also served as offensive assistant, receivers coach and special-teams assistant.

Prior to the Alouettes, Bolduc served as head coach at Université de Sherbrooke Vert et Or from 2007-11. He took the team to the playoffs three times, winning the first playoff game in program history and its first-ever appearance in the Dunsmore Cup game in 2010. In 2011, he won the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) conference’s coach of the year award after leading the team to a 7-2 record.

The Alma, Que., native was the head coach and offensive coordinator at Collège Montmorency from 2005-06, leading the program to the Bol d’or final for the first time in its history. He began his coaching career as the offensive coordinator for the Université de Montréal Carabins in 2002.

Bolduc enjoyed a six-year playing career (1996-2001) with Ottawa, Edmonton and Montreal, seeing action both as a receiver and a running back. As a member of the Alouettes from 1998 to 2001, Bolduc emerged as a leader and was named the special teams captain in 1999 and 2000.

He played his college football with Concordia University from 1992 to 1995, helping the Stingers win the Dunsmore Cup in 1993 and earning all-star honours in his two final seasons. Previously, he played for the Victoriaville Vulkins at the Cégep AA level, helping the team win the Bol D’or.

He is married to Patricia Dufort and they have four children together – Thomas and Raphaël, as well as twins Justine and Elizabeth. Thomas graduated from the Université of Laval Rouge et Or where he played quarterback, winning the Vanier Cup in 2022. Raphaël is studying at Sherbrooke University while Justine and Elizabeth are studying at the Sherbrooke Cégep.
