“We’re excited to add Steve Walsh to the offensive staff in Ottawa,” head coach Paul LaPolice said in a statement. “Steve brings a wealth of experience and will be a great mentor to our quarterbacks.”
Prior to his coaching career, Walsh played 11 seasons in the NFL while recording 713 completions in 1,317 pass attempts for 7,875 yards and 40 touchdowns. Walsh was selected in the first round of the NFL’s 1989 supplemental draft by the Dallas Cowboys after an outstanding collegiate career at the University of Miami.
During his time with the Hurricanes, Walsh led his team to an NCAA title as a sophomore in 1987 and was named an All-American and finished fourth in Heisman Trophy balloting the following season.
