The Montreal Alouettes appear to be narrowing down the field in the hiring of their new general manager.

According to TSN Senior Correspondent Gary Lawless, Ottawa Redblacks assistant GM Brock Sunderland has been told by Alouettes' ownership he will not be the team's next GM, and at this point, University of Montreal Carabins head coach Danny Maciocia is not in negotiations with the team.

Sunderland and Maciocia were each reported to have interviewed with the Alouettes for their vacant GM job.

Didier Ormejuste of RDS reported that Joey Abrams, thought to be a third candidate for the position, was never considered by the Als.
