EDMONTON — The Edmonton Elks have fired special teams co-ordinator 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 co-ordinator on June 22, following the departure of former special teams co-ordinator 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.
