WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Blue Bombers general manager Joe Mack is on thin ice.

Bombers president/CEO Garth Buchko has recommended to the board of directors Mack be let go with still another year left on his contract, according to reports, Thursday.

The recommendation will go to a regular board meeting scheduled for next Wednesday, unless an emergency meeting is called before that.

Buchko is on a family vacation and a team spokesman said he would not be made available for comment. He’ll return on the weekend.

Several board members reached by the Winnipeg Sun would neither confirm nor deny the reports, referring questions to board chair Brock Bulbuck.
