The Toronto Argonauts have parted ways with General Manager Jim Barker after six seasons on the job, the team announced Tuesday morning.
Over his 30-plus year career, Barker has won four Grey Cups (1997, 2002, 2008 and 2012) as both a coach and as a football executive.
No immediate replacement has been named.
“On behalf of our entire organization, and our fans, I would like to thank Jim Barker for his many contributions over the past seven years,” said Michael Copeland, Argonauts’ president and chief executive officer. “He helped deliver the 100th Grey Cup to Toronto in 2012, and that will forever define his legacy as an Argonaut.
“We remain committed to building a best-in-class organization that consistently plays dominant and exciting football, and wins championships. To help achieve this, we feel that we require the fresh approach that only comes from new leadership.”
