Kavis Reed will be back as Montreal’s general manager for the 2018 campaign, according to Alouettes beat reporter Herb Zurkowsky.
All indications within the organization are the rookie GM will be allowed to return next season, the Montreal Gazette has learned.
After the Als were eliminated from playoff contention on Thanksgiving Monday, many expected Montreal to sell off some assets at the trade deadline.
“There were requests for some of our players, but it didn’t make sense for us. It didn’t make sense you would give guys away essentially,” Reed told the Montreal Gazette by telephone. “That’s the impulsivity … that can get you into a lot of trouble. For us, in a state where we’re trying to get this right, we can’t be impulsive. We can’t react to certain things and put yourself behind the eight-ball.”
Montreal has the worst offence in the CFL (286 points scored), sit last in the CFL with a 3-12 record while the Als are currently on an eight-game losing streak.
