Bombers hire former B.C. Lions scout

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers hired Ryan Rigmaiden as a national scout Friday.

Rigmaiden joins the Bombers after six seasons with the B.C. Lions, the last four as their director of U.S. scouting.

“We’re very pleased to add Ryan’s experience to our scouting staff,” Winnipeg GM Kyle Walters said in a statement. “He has helped the Lions find some quality football players in the past number of seasons, and has an extensive history of finding football talent.

“I’m looking forward to working with him and adding him to our group.”

Rigmaiden previously held the position of director of player personnel for the Arena Football League’s Spokane Shock in 2007. He was promoted to general manager in 2010.

Spokane made three championship appearances, winning twice, during Rigmaiden’s tenure.

  1. Good news. It’s somewhat of a talent to spot potential in a young player. Now to hire a DC and retool the back end of the D itself.

  2. On the BC Lion news announcing Ed Hervey coming back it sounded like Rigmaiden was ALL IN with Ed and the new football ops structure. Wonder what changed his mind to jump ship for a lesser position with the Bombers? Hope he finds some gems for the Bombers for 2018.

  3. Bc did not bring him back.. bs..

  4. What happened to Wally’s Pet Obie ???

  5. Please/ a arena guy. who did he bring into the Bc. ??
