Buono served as head coach and GM of the Calgary Stampeders from 1990-02 before moving over to the B.C.

The sure-handed slotback, regarded as one of the leagues best receivers ever, was twice the outstanding Canadian (02, 03) and played in seven Grey Cup games, winning three. Cahoon retired following the 2010 season as the CFLs all-time leading receiver with 1,017 career catches, a record Saskatchewan Roughriders star Geroy Simon surpassed this season. Cahoon recorded nine career 1,000-yard campaigns with Montreal. Okeke, 43, of Beaumont, Tex., played 13 CFL seasons as an offensive lineman with Shreveport, Ottawa and Montreal. He appeared in 163 games over 10 years with the Alouettes and played in five Grey Cup games, winning in 02. Okeke, currently working in the Alouettes front office, was also named the leagues top lineman in 99 and was a seven-time all-star. Roberts, 34, of Montclair, Calif., spent seven-plus seasons of his eight-year CFL career with Winnipeg, establishing club records for yards (9,987), 1,000-yard seasons (six), 100-yard games (37), carries (1,853), yards in a season (1,624) and all-time rushing TDs (64). A two-time CFL all-star, Roberts was the leagues top special-teams player in 01 and appeared in two Grey Cup games with the Bombers (01, 07) before finishing his career with the B.C. Lions in 08. Lumsden, 60, of London, Ont., enjoyed a stellar college career at Ottawa and in 75 helped the Gee-Gees go 11-0 and capture the Vanier Cup. Lumsden ended his collegiate tenure as the Vanier Cup MVP. He left school first in all-time CIS scoring (410 points) and his 148 points in 75 was second all-time. That season, Lumsden scored 37 points -- including five TDs -- in a single game. Lumsden played in the CFL from 76 to 85 with Toronto, Hamilton and Edmonton, winning three Grey Cups with the Eskimos (1980-82) and being named the top Canadian in the 81 contest. Lumsden was also in the Ticats front office when they won their last league title in 99. Racine, 76, a native of Cornwall, Ont., was an offensive lineman and kicker with Ottawa from 1958-74, appearing in five Grey Cup games and winning four times. He played 201 career games with the Rough Riders and was an East all-star three times. The franchise retired his No. 62 jersey upon his retirement. Haylor, 67, of Prince Albert, Sask., spent 25 seasons as a Canadian university head coach (1971-73 at Saskatchewan, 1984-06 at Western). Seven times he was the OUA coach of the year and twice (90, 98) received the Frank Tindall Award as the CISs top coach. Under Haylor, Western won the Yates Cup eight times and twice captured the Vanier Cup as Canadian university footballs top squad. He retired in 06 with a 178-43-4 career record. cheap china jerseys

The freshman guard announced his decision and plans to hire an agent on Monday after team officials said he spent the weekend discussing his future plans with his family at their home outside Orlando, Fla. "Duke has prepared me for the challenges that are ahead both on and off the court," Rivers said in a statement issued by the school. "I have learned so much from the coaching staff and my teammates that will help me succeed at the next level." The son of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers averaged a team-leading 15.5 points and was a unanimous selection as the Atlantic Coast Conferences rookie of the year. Hes just the third Duke freshman to lead the team in scoring after Johnny Dawkins in 1983 and Bill Sapp in 1945. "Austin had a terrific year as a freshman and has put himself in a position to pursue his dream of being a great player in the NBA," coach Mike Krzyzewski said, adding that he supports the decision. cheap jerseys

Hes the fourth player to leave Duke after one season and the second one-and-done guard in two years after Cleveland made Kyrie Irving the No. 1 overall pick of last years draft. The others are Corey Maggette in 1999 and Luol Deng in 2004. Doc Rivers, speaking to reporters in Charlotte before the Celtics game against the Bobcats on Monday night -- before his sons decision was made public -- said he thought his choice would be a good one no matter what he decided to do. "Listen, going to the NBA if youre going to get drafted in the first round, thats good," Doc Rivers said. "Going back to Duke, thats good. So I dont know if you have a bad choice." cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys
