JI not only hired "Pinball" he nicknamed him!
JI also gave Marv Levy his start in the CFL.
JI recruited 176 players and numerous coaches into the CFL. At least 3 of "his players" are in the Football Hall of Fame. One of his former players was Commissioner of the CFL. Others are Cup winning Coaches.
The Football writers voted him All-Time GM of the Alouettes.
JI also held Senior Posts with the Raiders, 49ers, Broncos, Cowboys, Patriots, Ottawa RoughRiders, Shreveport, Toronto Argonauts, the Schooners and Alouettes. NCAA and CIFU!
Why is JI not in the Hall of Fame???

I believe that Michael Clemons could his nickname from Bob O'Billovich, General Manager of Hamilton.
