Etch Out In The Peg


The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has relieved defensive coordinator Gary Etcheverry of his duties with the club.

“Obviously a decision like this is a very difficult one to make on many levels,” said Head Coach Mike O’Shea. “The reality of the situation is such that we simply weren’t good enough on the defensive side of the football this season, and felt that we needed to go in a different direction in this regard. Gary is a good man and a good football coach, and the Blue Bombers wish him well moving forward.”

Regarding the position coaches on the defensive staff, O’Shea added, “The defensive staff are not under contract for next season, however the incoming defensive coordinator will have the opportunity to move forward with any of these coaches if he sees fit.”
