Published May 3, 1995
Dick Vermeil could be a major player for the CFL's proposed franchise in Miami, reports Marty York in today's Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. The early word is Vermeil could become part-owner, GM, and/or head coach of the Miami team, which would start play in '96 (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 5/3). GOODWILL GESTURE: All proceeds from the June 24 CFL exhibition between Birmingham and Baltimore at the Orange Bowl will be donated to the Oklahoma City Relief Fund established for victims of the bomb tragedy. The success of this game will go a long way in determining whether or not the Miami Manatees become a reality. CFL Commissioner Larry Smith: "The League is proud to be associated with such an event which will assist the people of Oklahoma City during this tragic time" (Judy Battista, MIAMI HERALD, 5/3).
