Career Highlights

  • Won 109 games out of the 136, Currie coached for the Regina Rams.


Gord Currie began his coaching career at Regina's Balfour Tech in 1950. At one stage, the Balfour Redmen won 40 straight games. While coaching at Balfour, his football teams won eight Saskatchewn championships, successes that were mirrored by the baseball and hockey teams, which he also coached.

Currie joined the Regina Rams of the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) in 1965 and remained as head coach until 1976. During his tenure with the Regina Rams, his team won one Alberta Junior League championship, eight Manitoba-Saskatchewan League championships, seven Western Canadian Junior championships, and six Canadian Bowl championships with the final national title coming in his last game.

Through 26 years of coaching, Currie was lauded for the inspirational effect he had on his teams, the motivation he provided his players to develop their character and for stabilizing the foundation of the rams, who became one of the country's most successful amateur sports teams.

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 2005 as a builder.
