Lewis (Lew) Hayman arrived in Canada in 1932 and within a few months assumed the position of head coach of the Toronto Argonauts.
Hayman coached to his first Grey Cup win in 1933, when he was only 25 years old and stressed a "hot potato" style of offence which was entertaining to watch and difficult to defend against. Hayman led the Argonauts to two more Grey Cup victories in 1937 and 1938.

Hayman coached the Toronto RCAF Hurricanes to a Grey Cup in 1942 and, following the war, helped to reorganize the struggling Montreal Alouettes franchise where he was the head coach, general manager and part owner. Hayman led the Alouettes to a Grey Cup in 1949.
After his coaching career, Hayman returned to the Argonauts from 1955 until 1983 where he had three titles; the Managing Director, President, and an Executive Consultant. While with the Argonauts during his second stint, he was part of the Argonauts Grey Cup victory in 1983.

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 1975 as a builder.
