Lyle Bauer was named today as president and COO of the Calgary Stampeders.

The former biz wiz of the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers takes over the position held last season by Scott Ackles, who left last month to head up the 2010 Grey Cup festivities in Vancouver.

Bauer will be in charge of business operations, while GM/head coach John Hufnagel will be boss of daily football duties.

"Over the years, I have been able to watch the commitment this ownership group has demonstrated to ensure the viability of this organization for the city, their fans, staff and players," Bauer said. "They have also demonstrated the commitment to acquire the best talent on and off the field and understand the required investment to be a premier franchise in the Canadian Football League."
