|Career highlights and awards|
Craig Dickenson (born September 4, 1971) is the head coach for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League (CFL). He has coached professional football since 2000 and won a Grey Cup championship with the Calgary Stampeders in 2008 and with the Edmonton Eskimos in 2015.
Dickenson played college football as a kicker for the Montana Grizzlies.
Dickenson first coached in the Canadian Football League when he was hired by Wally Buono to be the receivers coach and offensive assistant for the Calgary Stampeders on March 25, 2002.
Following the 2018 CFL season, Dickenson interviewed for the Roughriders' vacant head coaching position following the departure of Chris Jones, and was subsequently promoted on January 25, 2019. The Riders finished 2019 with an improved record of 13-5, winning the West Division for the first time in a decade. After a disappointing season in 2022 there was much speculation about the future of the Riders' coaching staff, however, on November 1, 2022, it was announced that Dickenson would return as head coach. Offensive coordinator Jason Maas and three other offensive coaches did not have their contracts renewed.
