The new boss of former South Whidbey football coach Chris Tormey.

South Whidbey High School’s loss is Montreal’s gain.

After just one season at the helm of the Falcon football program, Chris Tormey resigned to take a job in the Canadian Football League.

Tormey, who went 2-8 in his one season in Langley, losing 35-28 to Coupeville, has been a longtime college coach, but this is his first professional job.

He became the linebackers coach for the Montreal Alouettes in late Jan.

The Alouettes are one of the CFL’s premier teams, having won seven Grey Cups, with the last title coming in 2010.

During his college gridiron coaching days, Tormey went 49-54 with stints at Idaho and Nevada. He was a longtime assistant at the University of Washington, putting in 16 years with the Huskies.

The South Whidbey change is the second to hit Whidbey Island this year, with Brett Smedley having replaced Tony Maggio in Coupeville.

Maggio put in three years as the helm of the Wolves, beating South Whidbey twice and leaving The Bucket in possession of CHS when he departed to spend more time focusing on work and family.
