Wow John Murphy out as Riders VP/Player Personnel...  guess there's no need for him - Jones is the complete package

That's an interesting move. I thought Murphy was a well regarded scout?

He is....and this is a big loss for the Riders. Not only for his scouting but for the amount of GM work he was doing also. Jones, already sliced way too thin, now has to find a way to get the work done that he had Murphy doing.

Just got an insider note about John Murphy’s departure from the #Roughriders: “It was due to his unwillingness to take a 10%+ pay cut under the newly imposed coaches’ cap. He agreed to a two-year deal and felt the Riders should live up to their obligation on that final year ...

So the question is: Are the Riders paying that final year? Or was it forfeited with him ‘stepping down?’” #CFL #Roughriders

If keeping him wasn’t worth 10% of his salary he clearly wasn’t wanted.

Part of it could have been the principle. Some people have already lost their jobs and Jones took a 10% cut. If Murphy doesn't maybe someone else loses their job too.

The salary cap for CFL team admins. He  was making a huge salary so he had to go.  I wonder if Jones takes a pay cut? I'm asking that tongue in cheek.

Old enough to remember hiring was a "coup" for the Riders since he was the architect of the Stamps success.Guy is a stud player finder extraordinaire etc etc.

And now he scuffles off without a fight.

Well, when you have Jones, what more do the Riders need?

He took a 10% cut.

Quite the sacrifice considering he was making something like half a million a year as Chief Cook & Bottle Washer with the Riders. 

He makes very good money but he wears many hats. Imagine if you has to cook and wash dishes for the entire team and the second (and possibly third) team that they keep hidden away.
