"It appears the Edmonton Eskimos are ready to fill the void left when general manager Danny Maciocia was fired in July.
CFL on TSN Insider and Globe and Mail sports writer, Dave Naylor, is reporting that the Eskimos will name Eric Tillman as their new general manager.
The Eskimos interviewed a number of candidates for the position, including Roughriders' director of US scouting Joe Womack and Alouettes assistant general manager Marcel Desjardins, but while no deal is in place, multiple sources say that Tillman will be the Eskimos' choice as their next GM.
An announcement is expected within the next few weeks.
Tillman stepped down as GM of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in January after legal issues in Regina.
As a general manager, he has won three Grey Cups with three different teams, including the Roughriders triumph in 2007."http://tsn.ca/cfl/story/?id=333618
