AFTER FILLING IN ADMIRABLY, CFL'S TORY READY TO STEP DOWN
Published March 9, 1998
CFL Acting Commissioner John Tory "gave the league's board of governors his notice" on Friday and said he plans to step down from his post "no later than" November 22, the date of the '98 Grey Cup, according to the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. Tory said that he will "step aside sooner if a suitable replacement is found." Tory joined the CFL in '92 as the board chair and planned to step down after the '96 season. But after Commissioner Larry Smith resigned, Tory "not only remained but also added the job of acting commissioner" (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 3/7).
