Stampeders release one QB, add another in Montell Cozart

Larry Brihm Jr. is on his way out of Calgary as Montell Cozart comes to Cowtown.

Brihm Jr. spent training camp and the first seven games with the Stampeders as the third-string quarterback behind franchise man Bo Levi Mitchell and backup Nick Arbuckle. The 24-year-old dressed for six regular-season games but didn’t touch the field.

Cozart played collegiately Boise State University and the University of Kansas. During his senior season in 2017 with the Broncos, he completed 61-of-97 pass attempts for 754 yards and 10 touchdowns against just one interception and rushed 86 times for 361 yards and four touchdowns.

Prior to transferring to Boise to finish his NCAA carer, the 24-year-old played 27 games from 2013-2016 for the Jayhawks, completing 265-of-487 pass attempts for 2,755 yards and 14 touchdowns while rushing for 481 yards and two scores on 191 carries. Cozart was granted a medical redshirt season following the 2015 campaign after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury prior to game number five of the year.

Cozart is an athletic quarterback who ran a 4.67 40-yard dash, broad jumped 10-feet and recorded a 34-inch vertical at his Boise State pro day.
