WINNIPEG - The Tim Burke Watch has officially begun, with the Bomber head coach being asked about his future with the team and why he think he deserves to stay.

Burke met with the media Wednesday afternoon at Investors Group Field and said he will carry on as if he will be coaching in Winnipeg next season -- even if his two immediate bosses, GM Kyle Walters and CEO Wade Miller, both have "acting" in front of their titles.

"It's different, that's for sure," Burke said. "The great thing is all three of us work together well. I feel it is more of a collaborative effort, and hopefully we all hang around together and can move forward, because I think we got a great plan to move forward."

Burke said they are already putting a system in place to improve the team's underfunded scouting department, but it sounds like fans are going to have to be patient.

"We definitely have to improve our scouting, and it just isn't going to happen overnight," he said.
