Howard was assigned with the Sparrows in 2018. Previously worked with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (2013-2014) and Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2015-2017). The 56-year-old has also trained in the NFL and NCAA.

He was selected in the third round (73 overall) of the 1987 NFL Draft. The Texas native played football for the Kansas City Chiefs and Barcelona Dragons in the defunct NFL.

It was Jones’ second consecutive loss. He has maintained a 2-4 record so far in 2021. Defensively, “Als” is seventh in terms of points awarded, with 154 points.
