LSU confirms Myles Brennan’s retirement from football

Myles Brennan is officially ending his football career, LSU announced in a release on Monday.

On Monday morning, news broke that Brennan would be stepping away from the game after he was informed that he would not win the starting job, as was first reported by WWL’s Kristian Garic.

“We are grateful to Myles for everything he has done for LSU football,” coach Brian Kelly said in the release. “Myles is a great leader who 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.”

Brennan, a native of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, appeared in 20 games during his time with the Tigers with three starts. After three seasons as a backup, he was named the starter entering 2020. But he hasn’t appeared in a game since Week 3 of that season after two successive year-ending injuries.

He threw for 1,712 yards, 13 touchdowns and six interceptions during his five seasons in Baton Rouge.

Arizona State transfer Jayden Daniels, who comes in with three years of Power Five starting experience, is now expected to win the job, though redshirt freshman Garrett Nussmeier remains in the mix.
