Taman is entering his fourth season as GM and fifth with the Riders. He took over the CFL club's football operations department in November of 2011.

"I am once again grateful for the vote of confidence shown to me by Jim Hopson and the Riders board of directors," said Taman. "I understand and welcome the expectations and responsibilities that go along with having this position.
