That season, the Lions set a pro football record for passing yards, with quarterback Doug Flutie throwing for over 6,000 yards; and under Reinebold BC would have four 1,000-yard receivers that included Darren Flutie, Matt Clark, Ray Alexander and Mike Trevathan. In 1994, Reinbold moved to the expansion team the Las Vegas Posse as the special teams coordinator and defensive back coach under Ron Meyer. After the Posse folded, he stayed in the CFL, moving to the Edmonton Eskimos as special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach.
