Stampeders’ President Ron Rooke, Head Coach and General Manager Matt Dunigan Released
The Calgary Stampeders announced today that Club President and CEO, Ron Rooke, and Head Coach and General Manager, Matt Dunigan, have been released from the football club. Ron Rooke has been a member of the Calgary Stampeder organization for the past 13 years in a number of senior marketing and leadership positions, most recently as President and Chief Executive Officer. He played a major role in building the Stampeders into a strong and vibrant national sports brand. Matt Dunigan, in his 15th season with the CFL, spent the past year as Head Coach and General Manager of the Calgary football club. One of the most recognized names in the League over the past two decades, Dunigan came to the Stampeder organization from a successful tenure as a member of TSN’s football panel, a role he occupied since 1999.“We understand and recognize the effort and commitment these two individuals demonstrated day-in and day-out on behalf of the Stampeders’ organization, and thank both Ron and Matt for their contributions,” expressed the Executive Committee representing the new ownership group.
