Roughriders GM Brendan Taman told reporters on Monday that he met with Corey Chamblin earlier in the day and that he remains the head coach of the team "going forward".
Taman said the team's Board of Directors supports the decision and that Chamblin's earned the chance to try to turn this winless season around.
Taman also said he expects Chamblin will be the team's coach "for the year". His contract runs through the 2017 season, as does Taman's. Taman later clarified his comments on 620 CKRM's SportsCage stating he'd prefer if Chamblin fulfills his contract and beyond.
The GM would not address Saturday's TSN report that Chamblin was to be fired during next week's bye.
