Kyle Walters is remaining with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The Canadian Football League club announced on Tuesday that they have signed Walters to a two-year contract extension. Walters has been the Blue Bombers' general manager since 2013. Winnipeg also announced that assistant general manager and director of U.S. scouting Danny McManus and senior assistant general manager and director of player personnel Ted Goveia will also remain with the team. 

During his nine seasons at the helm of the Blue & Gold, Kyle has gone 98-72 with a pair of West Division and Grey Cup titles to his name. Walters has led the Bombers to four straight Grey Cup championship games, coming up short in the past two.

Next year will be McManus' 10th with Winnipeg while Goveia will also be entering his 10th season with the Bombers.

Next up for the organization is free agency and they will be looking to lock up some very key pieces. Contracts of Brady Oliveira (Most Outstanding Canadian), Rasheed Bailey, and Jermarcus Hardrick (Most Outstanding Lineman), alongside Jackson Jeffcoat and Willie Jefferson, are all set to expire.

Oliveira has expressed his interest in joining an NFL club; however, he also said he is very much open to returning to play for Winnipeg if his NFL dreams don't pan out.
