Former BC Lions head coach Greg Mohns passes awayJul 25, 2012 - 8:08 PM Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) - Former BC Lions head coach Greg Mohns has passed away.

The Lions began the 2000 season under Mohns with a 3-4 mark before he resigned and was replaced by Steve Buratto. In 34 games at the helm, Mohns' posted a career record of 22-12.
