Roughriders give GM Taman two-year extension

Regina, SK (SportsNetwork.com) - The Saskatchewan Roughriders have given general manager Brendan Taman a two-year contract extension through the 2017 season.

In addition to the extension, Taman will now be positioned as the vice president of football operations and general manager. His current deal was set to expire following the 2015 campaign.

Taman will enter his fifth year as the club's general manager. He took complete control of the football operations in November 2011.

"Brendan has proven to be a key contributor to the recent accomplishments of our football club," Roughriders president/CEO Jim Hopson said. "This extension, along with (head coach) Corey Chamblin's current extension, creates stability and continuity within the Riders football operations which is a key ingredient to long term success. We are pleased to come to an agreement with Brendan as these two gentlemen work extremely well together and constantly challenge each other to find ways to continuously improve the on field product."

Last season, the Roughriders captured their fourth Grey Cup title.
