40 months after saying hello to the Rider Nation, Eric Tillman said goodbye this afternoon. Tillman has resigned as GM of the Riders after pleading guilty to a charge of sexual assault involving his teenage babysitter.
This situation has torn apart the Rider Nation with many compelling arguments on both sides. This is the best move for all involved. Eric's contributions to this team will never be forgotten which is something that those on both sides of this debate will agree on. Thanks for the memories Eric!
President and CEO Jim Hopson says a search is now underway. One person that will not be on that list is current coach Ken Miller. Hopson says Miller has expresssed to him that he has no interest in being a coach/GM.
