Nugent began his college coaching career at the University of Iowa as an undergraduate assistant working with the offense.
Walch also worked for Trestman in Montreal. In 2012, Walch served as receivers coach after working the two years prior as a quality control coach in charge of special teams.
Before joining the Alouettes, Walch worked three seasons (2007-09) at his alma mater Winona State.
