Alouettes hire Dan Hawkins as head coach

MONTREAL — Former Boise State and Colorado coach Dan Hawkins has been hired to coach the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL.

He succeeds Marc Trestman, who was hired as the Chicago Bears' coach last month. Trestman led the Alouettes to Grey Cup titles in 2009 and 2010 and was the CFL's coach of the year in 2009.

Hawkins has never coached in the CFL. He was 19-39 at Colorado and 53-11 at Boise State and has an overall coaching record of 112-61-1.

Mike Miller, the Arizona Cardinals' offensive coordinator last season, will be on the Alouettes' coaching staff.
