          === Argonauts announce contract extension for Milanovich ===
 Toronto,  ON (Sports Network) - The Toronto Argonauts extended the contract of
 head coach Scott Milanovich on Thursday.
 "Scott  Milanovich  has had  an excellent first  year as a  head coach. We are
 building  a  future based on  stability and continuity  and it is an important
 step  in that process," said Argos chairman and CEO Chris Rudge. "Our team has
 been  both highly  competitive and  exciting, and  I am  pleased that  General
 Manager Jim Barker has worked to ensure that Scott will be our on-field leader
 into the future."
 Milanovich, who took over for Jim Barker last Dec. 1, led the Double Blue to a
 9-9 record this past season, good enough for second place in the East Division
 with  a home playoff game -- the first for the franchise since 2007 -- against
 the Edmonton Eskimos this Sunday.
 "I'm  glad to extend my time in Toronto and I want to thank Jim Barker and the
 club for committing to what we've started here," Milanovich said. "Having this
 kind  of endorsement  from  the organization  allows me  to  continue to  work
 closely  with Jim to  extend our plans for this football team further into the
 future.  I believe the pieces are in place here to help my staff and me ensure
 this organization will compete for the Grey Cup year in and year out."
