Alouettes interview GM candidate

Redblacks assistant general manager Brock Sunderland interviewed with the Alouettes on Wednesday, per CFL sources.

Venerable Als reporter Herb Zurkowsky alluded to it in the Montreal Gazette.

The 37-year-old played an integral role in the football operations staff Ottawa general manager Marcel Desjardins assembled when the franchise came to be in 2014. Sunderland’s stock is high after the Redblacks upset Calgary 39-33 to claim the 104th Grey Cup championship.

He spent four years with Montreal from 2004-2007, starting as a regional and advance scout before being elevated to director of scouting. Sunderland then moved to the New York Jets for six seasons as a pro scout prior to landing in Ottawa. That NFL experience means the University of Montana grad has lots of connections down south. His father Marv is a college scout for the Tennessee Titans who has spent 40 years in the NFL.

Sunderland interviewed for the Saskatchewan Roughriders general manager position last year.
