“On behalf of Athletics and Recreation, we are thrilled to welcome Dexter Janke to our department and the university,” York Executive Director, Athletics and Recreation, Steven Chuang said. “Coach Janke’s core values align with our mission of delivering a world class student-athlete experience by transforming the lives of everyone that we touch — one Lion at a time.”

Janke has a wealth of Canadian Football experience. He started his career as an undergraduate at the University of Saskatchewan before spending some time in the CFL with the Calgary Stampeders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. His most recent success comes from a Canadian Junior Football League conference title with the Westshore Rebels (B.C.) where he spent four seasons in various roles. At the peak of his time with the Rebels, he was named both BCFC and CJFL Coach of the Year.

“The way I’m approaching this is making sure we have a clear and healthy culture established, and making sure we have a group of individuals who are committed to the process and committed to each other,” said the four-year CFL veteran. “I’m working hand in hand with the coaching staff to make sure we have a solid structure and foundation to build upon,” the former CFL veteran remarks on his new role.

Janke’s first official day on the job is Monday, Feb. 5.
