MONTREAL -- Mike Miller, who was demoted from offensive co-ordinator's job in mid-season, will leave the Montreal Alouettes when his contract expires on Dec. 31, the CFL club announced Monday.
The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinator's duties in July. His contract also expires at the end of the year.
Miller was brought in along with head coach Dan Hawkins, who was fired after five regular-season games. When Miller was removed as OC, the team said he requested to have his two-year contract reduced to only one year.
"At this time, the Alouettes are looking at all options for their 2014 offensive co-ordinator," the team said in a statement.
General manager Jim Popp took over as head coach from Hawkins and brought the team to an 8-10 record. They were beaten by Hamilton in the East Division semifinal.
The team as yet to announce whether Popp will remain in the job or if a new head coach will be hired.
