The Edmonton Eskimos won the game Friday night, but it still wasn't enough to save their general manager's job.

On Saturday, Eskimos president and CEO Rick LeLacheur announced the club had fired Danny Maciocia, who had been with the team for the past eight years.

Maciocia started as an assistant coach with the Eskimos before moving up to head coach, then general manager and director of player personnel.

Maciocia's firing follows a 28-25 home victory over the B.C. Lions on Friday night.

The team has yet to find a successor for Maciocia and has not set a time line to put one in place.
