Player agent Johnathon Hardaway approached about being Alouettes GM: report

The Montreal Alouettes have looked into player agent Johnathon Hardaway as a potential general manager candidate, according to Montreal Gazette reporter Herb Zurkowsky.

Kavis Reed was fired on July 14 leaving the GM position vacant for the time being.

Hardaway represents a number of CFL clients, most notably current Als linebacker Henoc Muamba and the most recent No. 1 overall draft pick, offensive lineman Shane Richards.

Through the years, Hardaway has been a hardline negotiator for the players under his guidance. And he’s become known for sending his players to the combine and pull them out of drills at the last minute.
