New Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach Mike O’Shea has added two faces to his staff, one familiar to fans, the other a long-time veteran of the Canadian college ranks.

The Bombers announced today that Pat Tracey is the new special teams coordinator while Markus Howell will remain the wide receivers coach.

Tracey comes to the Bombers after a long stretch with Queen’s University. He first joined Queen’s in 2000 as special-teams coach and recruiting coordinator and became defensive coordinator in 2001. Tracey also helped guide Queen’s to a Vanier Cup championship in 2009.

"Pat has a wealth of experience in Canadian football, is a great teacher and has had tremendous success at Queen’s. His knowledge of CIS athletes will be an asset. We are very excited to add him to our coaching staff,” said O’Shea in a release.

Howell will remain on the staff and enters his 15th season in the CFL, his fourth as a coach. Howell played 11 seasons with Winnipeg, Ottawa, and Calgary as a receiver, defensive back, and returner.

"We are very pleased to keep Markus on our staff. He is a dedicated, hardworking football coach, who is greatly respected by his players. His experience in our league as both a player and a coach is invaluable," said O’Shea.

The Bomber staff now includes Tracey, Howell and offensive co-ordinator Marcel Bellefeuille.
