With O'Day at the helm the Club has gone 22-10 and hosted two home playoff games, winning the first playoff game in new Mosaic Stadium on November 27, 2021.

In 2012, he was named assistant general manager, a position he held for the next four years. In December of 2015, O'Day was named Assistant Vice President of Football Operations and Administration.
Off the field, O'Day spent countless hours in the community, an effort that was recognized by the CFL in 2008 when he was named the winner of the Tom Pate Award. Giving back to the community remains incredibly important to him and is something he continues to do at every opportunity.
