TORONTO (AP) — David Braley, the owner of three Canadian Football League teams over the years and once the league’s interim commissioner, died Monday. He was 79.
He died at home in Burlington, Ontario, according to the B.C Lions, one of his teams. A cause was not given.
Braley also owned the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Toronto Argonauts. In one stretch, he owned the Tiger-Cats and Argonauts at the same time, the only person in league history to own two franchises simultaneously.
His teams won four CFL titles, among them Toronto’s championship in the 100th Grey Cup in 2012.
