SSC alum Myles Brennan stepping away from football
Former St. Stanislaus football star Myles Brennan has apparently ended his college football career.
LSU coach Brian Kelly posted a statement on his and LSU football’s social media, thanking Brennan for everything he’s done for the program.
“We are grateful to Myles for everything he has done for LSU football. Myles is a great leader who has made a tremendous impact on this program and 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 of his journey moving forward,” Kelly wrote.
The decision comes after Brennan, a sixth-year senior from Long Beach, apparently was told by LSU football coaches that he will not be the team’s starting quarterback this fall.
Brennan was in competition with Arizona State transfer Jayden Daniels for the starting role, in addition to Garrett Nussmeier and 4-star recruit Walker Howard. But most analysts projected the job would come down to either Brennan, Daniels, or Nussmeier.
In addition, Brennan signed NIL deals with Raising Canes, Smoothie King, GameCoin, Smalls Sliders and Hollingsford Richards Ford. He hasn’t played since signing, but because NIL deals can’t be based on performance, he can keep the money.
Brennan has not commented on Kelly’s post.
