Anthony Calvillo plans to take 2018 away from football: report


The CFL’s all-time passing yards leader is likely going to take time away from football in 2018, according to Montreal Gazette reporter Herb Zurkowsky.

After a Hall of Fame playing career, Calvillo has spent the last three seasons as a coach with Montreal moving from receivers to offensive coordinator and overseeing quarterbacks the last two years.

The 45-year-old played 16 seasons for the Alouettes, winning three Grey Cups and three Most Outstanding Player awards. Calvillo’s final numbers were impressive: 79,816 yards and 455 touchdowns, but that success as a player hasn’t been replicated as a mentor, yet.
