List of Montreal Alouettes head coaches
The Alouettes were founded in 1946, and were in continuous operation until the franchise folded after the 1981. A new team, named the Montreal Concordes, was created for the 1982 season and was in operation for four full seasons as the Concordes. In an effort to reconnect with the fans the team changed their name back to the Alouettes for 1986 and then folded just before the regular season in 1987. The current franchise was relocated from Baltimore, Maryland as the Baltimore Stallions in 1996, after it became known that the NFL was relocating a franchise to that city. The CFL and the Montreal Alouettes organization recognize the history of the original Alouettes, the Concordes, and the current Alouettes as one franchise, and do not consider the Baltimore franchise as a part of the team's history. In their history, the team has appeared in 18 Grey Cup finals, and has won seven championships. On August 21, 2015, Alouettes ownership relieved Tom Higgins of his coaching duties and brought general manager Jim Popp to the bench for the fourth time. . The current owner is Bob Wetenhall
