(Edmonton) – 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.
