Charles "Chad" Kackert (born September 15, 1986 in Simi Valley, California) is a former Canadian football running back for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. He is currently the Toronto Argonauts Strength and Conditioning coach.

Collegiate career[edit]

Kackert played for Grace Brethren High School in Simi Valley, California and at the University of New Hampshire.

Professional career[edit]

Jacksonville Jaguars[edit]

Kackert signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted rookie following the 2010 NFL Draft[1] and participated in training camp, but was released prior to the start of the season.

Toronto Argonauts[edit]

Kackert signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League on February 14, 2011. Partway through the 2012 CFL season the Argonauts released Cory Boyd, making Kackert the starting tailback. He would finish the season with 638 yards, 5 touchdowns and a rushing average of 6.3 yards per carry. On November 25, 2012, Kackert was named the Most Valuable Player of the 100th Grey Cup, where he helped the Argonauts defeat the Calgary Stampeders 35–22. Despite rumours that he might try and sign with a NFL team, Kackert resigned with the Argonauts at the start of free agency.[2] During the 2013 season, Kackert suffered an ankle injury which eventually led to its retirement from football just before the start of the 2014 season. On the same date he announced his retirement, Kackert was named the strength and conditioning coach for the team [3]

On September 27, 2014, Kackert came out of retirement, and was added to the Argonauts' practice roster.[4] On Wednesday, October 15, 2014, the Toronto Argonauts released Kackert from the practice roster. He was released one week after suffering a right hamstring injury and was expected to miss the next 4–6 weeks. Upon his release, he re-assumed the role of Strength and Conditioning coach of the Toronto Argonauts.[5]
