The Broncos underwent sweeping changes following an 0-10 campaign in 2018.

Antons and head coach Brad Yamaoka were first to go. Longtime president Dino Bernardo joined the list of the departed in December.

Joe Liberatore was named GM in November. In January, Rob Ellis began his second head coaching tenure with the club.

Ellis this week told the BCFC Yamaoka will return to the sidelines in 2019 as running backs/special teams coach.

The Broncos held their annual general meeting on Feb. 13 and elected their board of directors for 2019-2020.

Officers include Darren Watt, president; Mike Harrison, vice-president; Shane Steptoe, secretary, Jim McCreight, treasurer; Tim Parker, director of football operations; Antons, director of business operations; and directors at large Gina Parker, Jim Motokado, Peter Mutrie, Darryl Chow and Dominic Diamaulo.

Antons was also named alternate governor and assistant GM of the junior B lacrosse Kamloops Venom on Sunday.
