Brendan Taman Is On Rider Payroll


Saskatchewan Roughrider President/CEO Jim Hopson is very pleased to announce Brendan Taman has been named the team’s Director of Football Administration.

“We are thrilled about bringing Brendan back to Saskatchewan,” stated Hopson. “When the search started to replace Tony Playter in our football operations department, Brendan’s name was at the very top of the list. Brendan brings a tremendous amount of experience to the organization and will be a huge asset to Eric Tillman and Ken Miller in our football operations department.”

Taman joins the Riders after spending ten years with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the last five seasons as the team’s General Manager. He spent the 1997 and 1998 seasons as the Director of Player Personnel with the B.C. Lions. Before that, he spent four seasons (1993-1996) as Assistant Director of Player Personnel with the Roughriders. From 1989-1992, Taman was Operations Manager for Football with the Ottawa Rough Riders.

“I am very excited to be back in Saskatchewan working with such a first-class organization,” stated Taman. “Eric and I have been friends for a long time and we have always wanted to work together. When this opportunity arose it was too good to pass up. Working alongside Eric, Ken Miller and the rest of the football operations department will be a great experience.”
