Leroy Blugh (born May 14, 1966) is a former professional Canadian football defensive lineman and the current defensive line coach for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League. He played for fifteen seasons in the CFL for two different teams and was the winner of the CFL's Most Outstanding Canadian Award in 1996 and is a two-time CFL West Division All-Star and a 81st Grey Cup Champion (1993).[1]

Blugh served as the head football coach at Bishop's University, his alma mater, from 2005 until his resignation after the 2010 season.[2][3] He was named Defensive Line coach for Queen's University in August 2011. After one year with the Edmonton Eskimos as their defensive line coach, he was hired by the Ottawa Redblacks to serve in the same capacity on February 3, 2014.[4] He spent six seasons with Ottawa, highlighted by a championship win in the 104th Grey Cup game. After the Redblacks' head coach, Rick Campbell, resigned and joined the BC Lions, Blugh was announced as part of his 2020 staff on January 6, 2020.[5]

Blugh was born in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and grew up in Napanee, Ontario, where his family moved when he was five years old.[6] In 2015, he was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.
