Buchko: GM’s future to be determined ‘before the Grey Cup, for sure’

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 30/10/2012 (1753 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Bombers CEO Garth Buchko answered a few questions regarding his football team Monday while touring the new stadium:

"The team’s record overall is just disappointing. And it’s not acceptable, and we will review everything in the whole organization, including football operations."

"The board and myself will meet, and we’ll make a decision (on GM Joe Mack) very shortly."

"It’ll be before the Grey Cup, for sure."

"I think (the win/loss record over the past three years) comes into play.

The record that we’ve had this year is disappointing for sure. Part of the reviewing process is to review the record, but we also have to look at the talent that we have, and I think we have some great talent. We have one of the youngest teams in the CFL."

"I’m confident that I have surrounded myself with enough people who know football and talk to enough people who know football. My job is to hire one person, and that’s the general manager in football operations. And what happens with the coach after that is the general manager’s job. So I need to make an assessment on Joe Mack, the board needs to make an assessment on Joe Mack."
