kent-austinKent Austin is currently the Vice President of Football Operations and Head Coach of the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the CFL. Kent has had a stellar career in football, leading various teams in Canada (Saskatchewan Roughriders, BC Lions, Toronto Argonauts and Winnipeg Blue Bombers) as well as teams in the US to amazing victories. In 2000, Kent was elected to the University of Mississippi’s Sports Hall of Fame. In 2007, Kent was named the CFL Coach of the Year after he led the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a Grey Cup victory. He was again named a finalist for CFL Coach of the Year when the Ti-Cats became the first team in league history to reach the Grey Cup without a single CFL All-Star player. Over his long career, Kent has captured Grey Cup Championships as a player, assistant coach and head coach. 

Kent graduated with a degree in Business Administration. He and his wife Shelley live in Oakville and together enjoy parenting their three children. 

As a Christian, Kent will speak about his life experiences and how he tries to apply his faith to all his activities, both on and off the field. He will describe how he feels God guides him in his decision-making and helps him to balance his commitments to his work and to his family.
