The B.C. Lions have hired Ed Hervey as general manager and say Wally Buono will coach his final season in 2018.

The Lions made the announcement today following a disappointing season that saw them finish last in the CFL West Division at 7-11.

Hervey was general manager of the Edmonton Eskimos from 2013 to 2016, building a Grey Cup-winning team in 2015.

Buono is the CFL’s all-time leader with 273 coaching wins and had served as the Lions GM since 2003.

After an encouraging 5-2 start in 2017, injuries and inconsistent play plagued the Lions the rest of the way as they spiralled to a 2-9 finish and missed the CFL playoffs for the first time since 1996.

Completely unrelated, but did anyone notice the Eagles are going to be playing at Rogers Place just two days before this concert coming to Regina in May. Can we just pencil it in now?
