The man who was the general manager of the Saskatchewan Roughriders the last time they won the Grey Cup is back in the CFL.
Brendan Taman, who has not had a job since being fired by the Riders midway through the 2015 season, was hired Friday to become a senior player personnel executive with the Montreal Alouettes.
“Brendan possesses a vast knowledge of the CFL and Canadian football, on top of having many years of experience in our league. He will be a great help to our already solid football operations department,” general manager Danny Maciocia said.
“I am very happy to join the Alouettes family,” Taman said. “This team played exciting football last season and I want to help this team become even better in 2020 and for many seasons to come.“
Besides his time in Saskatchewan, Taman has also served as the general manager of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 2004 to 2008. He was hired by the Riders in 2010.
