620 CKRM's Sportscage insider Arash Madani of Rogers Sportsnet was the first one to bring the news and it was confirmed in this release by the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Monday night,
The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today they have relieved VP, football operations & general manager Brendan Taman, and head coach Corey Chamblin of their duties with the Football Club.
“We are not meeting our expectations or our standards on the field and these changes were necessary to move us forward,” stated Riders President & CEO Craig Reynolds.
“Brendan and Corey worked tirelessly for this organization and I thank them for all that they have done for our team,” continued Reynolds. “But we are in a results oriented business and the current position of our team is unacceptable and this decision was necessary for us to build this team towards sustained success.”
Both vacated positions will be filled on an interim basis with a full search being conducted at seasons end. Jeremy O’Day has been named interim VP, football operations & general manager, while Bob Dyce has been named interim head coach.
Reynolds, Dyce and O'Day will face the media Tuesday morning at 11 AM. 620 CKRM will bring that to you live from Mosaic Stadium.
