Former B.C. Lions quarterback Travis Lulay has rejoined the franchise in a front office capacity with the organization’s corporate partnerships team.
“Everyone knows the passion and dedication that Travis brought to our organization for 10 years as a player and we’re very pleased to have him with us in his new capacity,” president Rick LeLacheur said in a statement.
Lulay wrote a heartfelt piece detailing his pro football career and decision to retire from the sport in February. He spent all 10 of his CFL seasons playing for the B.C. Lions. The 35-year-old led the Lions to a Grey Cup championship in 2011 to cap a campaign in which he threw for a career-best of 4,815 yards and 32 touchdowns and earning the CFL Most Outstanding Player Award.
“I’m fired–up about the opportunity to continue to represent the BC Lions, this time on the other side of football. I’m thankful to Rick LeLacheur and George Chayka for the opportunity to remain with the orange and black in this new role and I look forward to maintaining existing and developing new relationships with partners,” Lulay said in a statement.
“With the season just around the corner, I’m happy I get to keep saying ‘Go Lions!’”
