Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach Tim Burke believes he has done enough to earn the right to stay on as head coach next season.

Burke said considering the "personnel deficiencies" on his roster and the lack of a true starting quarterback, he should get the chance to turn things around.

He said having his two bosses with interim titles makes life interesting but working with acting GM Kyle Walters and interim president Wade Miller is much better than what was previously in place.

Saying the three work together quite well and have a similar philosophy, Burke hopes all three can carry out their set plan for the future, which he admits will take four years to complete.

Burke has six wins in 13 months as head coach of the Blue Bombers.
