The 1958 BC Lions finished the season in fifth place in the W.I.F.U with a 3–13 record. Head coach Clem Crowe was fired after an 0–3 start to the season and replacement and former star end Dan Edwards didn't fare much better, losing the next seven games before finally recording a win in a game versus Calgary. Even with such a dismal start to the season, the Lions averaged 23,647 fans per game. On a stranger note, the Lions schedule was exactly the same as the previous season's.
