EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Elks have fired special teams coordinator Chris Rippon.
Rippon joined the Elks coaching staff as assistant to the head coach and special teams assistant in April.
He was promoted to special teams coordinator on June 22, following the departure of former special teams coordinator AJ Gass due to personal reasons.
The Elks lost their first two games of the 2021 CFL season at home before rebounding with a 21-16 win over B.C. Thursday night in Vancouver.
