If not for the inept GM (Joe Mack) we had during LaPos tenure here in Winnipeg he'd STILL be our HC. Sometimes it's the luck of the draw. Kyle Walters is one of the best GM's we've ever had.

On February 5, 2010, LaPolice was hired as the 28th head coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. His first season as head coach of the Blue Bombers saw the team win only four games and miss the playoffs while setting a CFL record for most losses by four points or less (nine times). The following year, the LaPolice helped to orchestrate one of the biggest turnarounds in CFL history as the Blue Bombers finished first place in their Division for the first time since 2001. The team also earned a berth in the Grey Cup, but lost to the BC Lions in the championship game. LaPolice was named a finalist for the CFL Coach of the Year in 2011 and given a contract extension during the offseason. However, after the club's poor start to the 2012 season, LaPolice was relieved of coaching duties by general manager Joe Mack midway through the season.
