ARGOS FIRE GM JIM BARKER
In his second stint with the team, Barker has been with the Argos since 2010.
Barker started as head coach of the Double Blue in 2010, was promoted to head coach and general manager for the 2011 season, and relinquished the head coaching job in 2012, hiring Scott Milanovich.
Barker and Milanovich led the Argos to victory in the 100th Grey Cup in 2012. It’s unclear if this move affects Milanovich’s standing as head coach.
Barker, who also coached the Argos in 1999, finished with a 15-21 record as head coach for the Argos from 2010-11, and a 49-59 record as general manager from 2011-2016. He was named CFL Coach of the Year in 2010.
