The Saskatchewan Roughriders have rewarded GM Brendan Taman with a contract extension.

The CFL club signed Taman to a two-year extension that keeps him with the Riders through the 2017 season. Taman also added the title of vice-president of football operations to his job description.

"Brendan has proven to be a key contributor to the recent accomplishments of our football club," Riders president/CEO Jim Hopson said in a statement. "This extension, along with (head coach) Corey Chamblin's current extension, creates stability and continuity within the Riders football operations which is a key ingredient to longterm success."

Earlier, Saskatchewan signed Chamblin to an extension that will keep him in Regina through 2017.

Taman, a Saskatoon native, has been the Riders' general manager since 2010 and his current deal was set to expire following the 2015 campaign.

Last year, the Riders captured the Grey Cup, just the fourth in franchise history.
