WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have named Toronto special teams co-ordinator Mike O'Shea as their new head coach.

O'Shea also spent 16 seasons as a player in the CFL at middle linebacker, most of them with Toronto.

He replaces Tim Burke, sacked after Winnipeg tied its worst record ever in the 18-game CFL this season at 3-15.

The Bombers have now pretty well cleaned house after the Joe Mack as GM era, replacing their president, general manager and coach.

Tuesday they also named former quarterback Danny McManus and Ted Goveia as new assistant GMs to join general manager Kyle Walters in rebuilding the team.

Now they just have to find a starting quarterback.
