The Canadian football team that hired former University of Hawaii head coach June Jones as their offensive coordinator last week has fired another former Rainbow Warrior coach.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League on Monday released defensive coordinator Jeff Reinebold. The 59-year old was promoted to the position in January after serving as the teams special teams coordinator and linebackers coach.

The Tiger-Cats are winless on the season (0-6), and the team's defense is ranked last in points against (39.0), total yards (460) and average yards-per-play (7.5).

Reinebold coached at the University of Hawaii with Jones between 2005 and 2007 and was a member of the undefeated team that appeared in the Sugar Bowl.
