Expect Bombers to name Walters GM next week

  • Print

REGINA - Kyle Walters will be named GM of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers early next week.

Walters has been acting GM of the Bombers since Joe Mack was fired in August and CEO Wade Miller will officially give him the position when he returns to Winnipeg after the Grey Cup.

Expect a press conference Tuesday or Wednesday.

The Bombers would not comment on this subject when contacted on Friday but they would not deny the appointment was forthcoming.

A potential candidate for the Blue Bombers GM job told the Free Press on Thursday he was unsure if he would take an interview with Miller if asked because most people in the CFL believed the job had already been given to Walters.

On Friday, the same candidate said he wouldn’t be accepting a request for an interview if it was offered.

"The job is Kyle’s. (The Bombers) are telling coaching candidates that Kyle will hold interviews beginning next week. I don’t even know if they were going to ask to speak to me," he said.

Earlier this week reports broke that Walters was planning to talk to Hamilton Tiger-Cats scout and former CFL quarterback Danny McManus about an assistant GM job with the Bombers.

Walters has been working and acting like he’s the GM of the Bombers for some time now and it will be offical next week.
