Blue Bombers boot QB Pierce to backup role


The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have announced that Justin Goltz is the team's permanent starting quarterback.

Buck Pierce will be the backup and help coach Gary Crowton develop up-and-comers at the position.

Goltz, 25, made his first career start last Friday in the Bombers' 37-24 loss to the Calgary Stampeders in Winnipeg.

The Bombers' next game is against the B.C. Lions on Monday in Vancouver.
