                   === Eskimos part ways with GM Tillman ===
 
 Edmonton,  AB (Sports  Network)  -  The Edmonton  Eskimos  have relieved  Eric
 Tillman of his duties as general manager.
 
 Tillman  led Edmonton to back-to-back playoff appearances since taking over in
 2010.
 
 The timing is surprising considering the Eskimos (7-11) have qualified for the
 playoffs  this year.  Edmonton finished its regular season Friday with a third
 straight  loss, and  will  face the  Toronto Argonauts  in  the East  Division
 semifinal on Nov. 11.
 
 "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," Eskimos president
 and  CEO Len Rhodes  said. "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  has  four Grey  Cup appearances  with three  wins in  his 12 years as
 general  manager with  Edmonton, Saskatchewan,  British Columbia,  Toronto and
 Ottawa.
