Desjardins will front Ottawa's CFL franchise
MARCEL DESJARDINS is getting a second shot at being a CFL general manager.
A CFL source requesting anonymity said the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group will name Desjardins the new GM of the city's CFL expansion franchise. The announcement will be made today at a news conference.
Desjardins, a native of Burlington, Ont., has spent the last four seasons as the Montreal Alouettes assistant general manager. Desjardins was the GM of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 2007 before returning to Montreal.
Overall, Desjardins has spent nine seasons as the assistant to Alouettes general manager Jim Popp. The hiring of Desjardins in Ottawa is hardly a surprise as he's been mentioned as a leading candidate for the GM post for roughly the last eight months.
The new Ottawa franchise will operate with a new name, as a condition of the city's return to the CFL was that the new club not use the Rough Riders team name.
