VANCOUVER -- The Grey Cup festivities have officially kicked off with the annual coaches news conference.

Kent Austin of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and John Hufnagel of the Calgary Stampeders will share the sidelines Sunday at B.C. Place Stadium.

The two men have a history, as Austin began his CFL career with Saskatchewan in 1987 when Hufnagel was a player-coach with the team.

Hufnagel chases a second Grey Cup with Calgary, winning in 2008.

Austin won his first Grey Cup as a head coach in '07 with Saskatchewan but his Ticats lost last year's game against the Riders in Regina.
