Les informations de Zurkowsky valent ce qu’elles valent, mais je crois qu’il y a un consensus sur ce site pour dire que Maciocia n’est pas le bienvenu et que nous sommes ouverts à laisser la chance à un DG recru. Le nom de Danny McManus revient souvent ici tout comme celui de Jean-Marc Edmé, ce qui est une bonne chose. Comme Khari Jones pourrait être signé dès mardi (selon Zurkowsky…), le DG devra prouver à l’organisation qu’il pourra travailler avec Jones. Le DG-adjoint est aussi à surveiller pour qu’il puisse combler les lacunes du DG qui sera choisi.
McManus is an interesting option … he always had the air of a “football mind” when he played.
But the BC combo Herb speculates on would be interesting …McEvoy (24 yrs in CFL, 5 yrs as director of football operations - player contracts, TC & and travel logistics, scouting prep and talent evaluation for the CFL draft … Simon is their director of Canadian scouting and draft coordinator.
If Khari is involved in the search and the mandate is to hire the best person for the job, not the oldest or the one with the best boys’ club credentials or someone’s buddy, then I’ll be satisfied no matter what happens, really. In fact, I’m happy already, because you know what? Regardless of who’s hired, that person won’t have been hired by an effing Wetenhall. No disrespect to Bob W for the legacy he built in Montreal, but the past seven years were fugly. It says something that the best head coach we’ve had since Marc Trestman only became head coach after the league took control of the team.
Didier Ormejuste said on his podcast that Khari Jones agent is pushing hard for one of his client to become the GM. The 3 names that he heard where Taman Tillman and McManus and he said that he was told to keep an eye on McManus
Remember that scene from “Watchmen” where The Ozymandius throws the Comedian out the High Rise Window.
Also, a lot of activity around Ted Goveia. Assistant GM of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Bio:ed Goveia is back for his sixth season as the Bombers Assistant General Manager, Director of Player Personnel. Goveia first joined the organization in December of 2013.
Goveia plays a key role in scouting talent in both Canada and the United States, and works closely with GM Kyle Walters and Danny McManus, Assistant GM/Director of U.S. Scouting.
Goveia previously held the role of Director of Player Personnel with the Toronto Argonauts, as well as coordinating the team’s CFL Canadian Draft. He first joined the Argos in 2010 as an assistant coach after previously working for 15 years in coaching and recruitment capacities throughout the Canadian college and Canadian junior football ranks. Those experiences include time at the University of British Columbia (offensive coordinator in 2004, head coach in 2006), McMaster University (receivers, running backs, special teams, recruitment coordinator from 2001-04) and Mount Allison University.
During his days with McMaster the Marauders had some of the most-successful recruitment classes in their history and the team advanced to three straight Yates Cup finals.
Goveia held the position of recruitment coordinator at Mount Allison, his alma mater, from 1994-98 after playing offensive line from 1991-93. In addition, he also served at various times as the Mounties offensive coordinator, offensive line and defensive line coach. He eventually took charge of all administrative aspects of the football program in helping the Mounties set new CIS team and individual records. Mount Allison reached the AUS finals in 1997 and 1997, capturing the championship in ’97. During his days there Mount Allison’s players attainted a 92 per cent graduation rate.
In the junior ranks, Goveia was the head coach of both the Oakville Longhorns and Burlington Braves, leading the latter to three provincial finals. He also coached at Assumption High School in Burlington, another alma mater, and was a guest coach at Argos training camp from 2001-08.
Zimmerman is interesting but I prefer the 2 guys from Winnipeg. I’d like something like that:
Président: Patrick Boivin
GM : Danny McManus
Assistant GM + Director of player personnel : Jean-Marc Edme
Assistant GM + USA scouting: Will Lewis
USA scouting: Russ Lande
Canadien Scouting: Miles Gorrell
Director of Football Operation: Scott Flory
HC: Khari Jones
OC: Khari Jones
DC: Davone Claybrooks
STC: Marcello Simmons
Kevin Glenn (QB)
Robert Gordon (WR)
Luc Brodeur Jourdain (OL)
André Bolduc (RB)
Marquay McDaniel (Offensive Assistant)
Barron Miles (DB + Defensive assistant)
Ed Philion (DL)
Todd Howard (LB)
Khalil Carter (Defensive Assistant)
C’est pratiquement un dream team, mais tu as oublié que Khalil Carter veut être directeur-général et non entraîneur. C’est pour ça qu’il a été mandaté pour faire du dépistage qui s’est révélé très utile.
To me Donovan did enough to stay. His unit started the season as a garbage fire but made some gains through 2019. And getting Alford really helped. Bede also seemed to stabilize in the back half of the season, and you have to think Donovan played some role in that.
geez I can’t imagine any scenario at all to have Khalil Carter involved in any role with the Als. If they get rid of Slowik then Mike Benevides would be my choice.
I think it is very likely that Danny McManus is the next GM. By his interview on Sunday and through his playing days he seems like a very collaborative guy, not afraid of questions, and clearly wants to be a GM. Very likeable and his experience checks most boxes.
