Eskimo President and CEO Len Rhodes has relieved Eric Tillman of his duties as general manager effectively immediately.
I have spent considerable time looking at the future direction of this club and did not see Eric as a part of this team moving forward, says Rhodes. We will begin our search for a new general manager immediately and hope to have a successor in place by the end of the calendar year.
Tillman joined the Eskimos in September 2010. Since then, the club has had back-to-back playoff appearances. In his 12 years as general manager with Edmonton, Saskatchewan, BC, Toronto and Ottawa, Tillman has four Grey Cup appearances with three wins.
