EDMONTON — The Edmonton Elks announced Wednesday special-teams co-ordinator/linebackers coach AJ Gass has left the organization for personal reasons.

Gass served twice as a member of the club's coaching staff.

After retiring as a player in 2007, Gass was a defensive assistant in 2008 under then head coach Danny Maciocia. Gass returned to the club in 2019 as special-teams co-ordinator before adding the linebackers job to his coaching resume earlier this year.

Gass, a 45-year-old California native, played 10 seasons with Edmonton as a linebacker (1998-2007). He was a member of two Grey Cup-winning teams (2003, '05) and four times was named a league all-star.
