....According to Lawless..Danny Mac has been hired by the Bombers in a player personnel role (and most likely as an adviser to Walters)...I really like this move...Danny is an up and comer...must have seen a dead-end road with the Ham. organization now that Austin is running the show...Anyway..glad to have him aboard...He'll be an integral part of finding new talent for this team...Great move :thup: :thup:
Yeah, this is one of the moves that I've been hoping for.
A good move indeed.
First Ron Burgandy is in town, now Danny M. is coming….fantastic.
I saw that coming when Austin had Young cut a cheque to Tillman's numbered company. Good pickup for the Bombers as this gives them a man in the Florida pipeline.
.....I would expect, as of now ,Tillman will have a bigger role in Ham.....As long as he's kept hidden in the background and doesn't advise on any quarterback moves, Austin and 'Eric the Red' should get along fine...We're are going to be more than happy with Danny M...
Will be interesting to see how long Allemang wants to be Tillman's clerk. :cowboy:
now confirmed by the blue bomber
Bombers name McManus and Goveia Assistant General Managers Monday, December 2nd, 2013
General Manager Kyle Walters announced today that Danny McManus (Assistant General Manager, Director of U.S. Scouting) and Ted Goveia (Assistant General Manager, Director of Player Personnel) have been added to the football operations managerial staff and will oversee all aspects of the organization’s U.S. and Canadian scouting.
A Canadian Football Hall of Famer, McManus joins the Blue Bombers after spending the past three seasons as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Head U.S. Scout, managing all aspects of their U.S. scouting throughout both the offseason and regular season. He also spent 2009 and 2010 as the Ti-Cats Southeast Regional Scout. McManus joined the organization in 2008 as an offensive assistant before moving into the scouting department in 2009. The former Bomber quarterback played 17 seasons in the CFL, winning three Grey Cup’s. McManus spent three seasons with the Blue Bombers (1990-92) and played in 54 games, getting six starts, all of which he led the club to a win (6-0).

Goveia comes aboard after spending the 2013 season with the Toronto Argonauts as Director, Player Personnel, overseeing scouting throughout both the United States and Canada, as well as the coordination of the CFL Canadian Draft. Prior to that, Goveia had been responsible for recruitment strategies in both Canada and the U.S. for the Argos, scouting various NFL pre-season camps. He first joined the Argonauts in 2010 as an assistant coach, and prior to that spent 15 years in various coaching and recruitment capacities throughout the CIS and Canadian Junior Football ranks. Goveia won a Grey Cup title with the Argonauts in 2012. Goveia’s full bio can be found here.
“Danny and Ted have very strong ties to both the U.S. and Canadian scouting ranks and will oversee all of our scouting in both countries, as well as see an increased role in our football operations,? says General Manager Kyle Walters. “We’re very excited to add a wealth of CFL knowledge to our staff and extensive experience in recruiting the type of players who will be successful in the Canadian Football League.?
The Blue Bombers also announce today that Drew Morris will continue with the organization in a more expanded role as a National Scout. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin native has spent close to two seasons with the Blue Bombers and will see a more increased role in scouting moving forward. Prior to his tenure in Winnipeg, Morris was a scout for the Atlanta Falcons.
.....Argos player personnel guy coming over from T.O. as well......hmmmmmmm we seem to be getting serious... The quality of people being hired for Bomber management is starting to reflect well on Miller...Great job so far....Now go get us a head coach that'll turn our heads, Miller and Walters ,and I'm going to be a total believer... :thup:
I really like the direction we are heading.More of a management team willing to lean on one another's strengths.It is what I liked about Miller/Walters tostart with.I think setting up a top quality managment team with that kind of attitude will go a long way in luring in coaching staff and a good QB. :thup:
