Quarterback Reesing unsure about football future

Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing warms up at Arrowhead Stadium before taking on Missouri in the 2009 Border Showdown.


Former Kansas University quarterback Todd Reesing was back in Lawrence on Wednesday, one day after being released by the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League.

Reesing expressed disappointment, but indicated that he and his agent would explore opportunities with other CFL teams in the future.

Reesing said he planned to travel to his hometown of Austin, Texas, today, where he would continue to work out and wait for his next shot on the field. The record-setting KU quarterback said he hoped football would remain a part of his life but that, as of Wednesday, no options were available.

“Not right now,” he said. “We’ll take a look at what’s out there and see what happens.”

Reesing left Kansas with 11,194 passing yards and 90 touchdowns in four seasons, both KU career records. In addition, he led the Jayhawks to back-to-back bowl victories in 2007 and 2008 and walked away as the fifth-leading passer in Big 12 history. He owns nearly every significant passing record in school history.

Too bad. He's a really good guy who got a rotten deal this past year at KU. Too bad we didn't have the sense to get rid of Mangino sooner.

1) Return to campus

2) Get MBA

3) Begin coaching

I'm sure Turner Gill can find a spot on his staff for a quarterbacks coach that set nearly every QB record at the University of Kansas.

Has Todd graduated?? If not, he should give it some serious consideration!

Not only did Todd graduate, but he graduated with degrees in BOTH Finance and Econ.

Unsure about your football future? Join the club, Todd, join the club. And thanks for everything!

Why not the new UFL? If Dante Culpepper can make a team I'm sure Todd could too. There's one just starting in Omaha this fall, we could use him up here, someone has to hand the ball off to Ahman Green.

I was thinking UFL as well. He'll get more playing time than on an NFL team.

Sorry to hear that, but I too think he should consider coaching if he wants to stay in the game.

I read a report a couple years ago about Reesing considering law school...I mean, he couldn't start this fall but he could study for the LSAT while he waits for other options to come up and if they don't he could apply to law school!

Coaching would be a great option also!
