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.
