There will be no trip to the coast for Eric Tillman this weekend.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders' general manager spent Thursday night at the Regina General Hospital after complaining of chest pains while working at his desk in the Canadian Football League team's offices earlier that day.

Eric Tillman, GM of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, won't make the trip to B.C. for the western final after a heart scare on Thursday night.
(CBC) CBC broadcaster Mark Lee says doctors "performed a battery of tests" on Tillman that ruled out a heart attack but they did send him home on Friday morning with orders not to accompany his club to Vancouver for Sunday's western final against the B.C. Lions.

Tillman's club chartered out on Friday afternoon.

Head coach Kent Austin accompanied the GM to the hospital and was at his side during the tests, Lee reported.

Tillman, hired during the 2006 season after the Riders fired GM Roy Shivers, is on his fourth CFL team. He has been GM of the B.C. Lions (1993-95), Toronto Argonauts (1997) and Ottawa Renegades (2002-2004).
