Brian Kelly Reacts To LSU Quarterback's Stunning Retirement

Brian Kelly, LSU Tigers Football

On Monday morning, a veteran LSU quarterback decided to step away from football to retire. That quarterback is Myles Brennan, who was competing for the Tigers' starting quarterback role ahead of the 2022 season. 

LSU football has since released a statement to address Brennan's retirement. In it, Brian Kelly thanks Brennan for all he did for the Tigers. 

"We are grateful to Myles for everything he has done for LSU football," said Kelly. "Myles is a great leader who had made a tremendous impact on this program, and he has earned the respect of everyone here through his commitment and love for LSU.

"Myles has always embodied the traits required to fulfill our mission to graduate champions, and we have full confidence those traits will help him succeed at every step in his journey as he moves forward."

Last year, Myles Brennan entered his name into the transfer portal before Brian Kelly persuaded him to return to Baton Rouge and battle for the starting quarterback position. 

Kelly also brought in Arizona State transfer Jayden Daniels, who now appears to be in the lead to win the starting role. 

Brennan, meanwhile, is now moving on from football. It'll be interesting to see what he does next.
