Bowness, who spent most of the past three seasons with the Dallas Stars, replaces Dave Lowry who was named interim head coach when Paul Maurice resigned in December.

Demski suffered an ankle injury in the third quarter of Winnipeg's 26-12 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in week three and was placed on the six-game injured list. The Blue Bombers defense has allowed one touchdown drive on 41 possessions this season and only allowed 12 points in the second half.
