Former CFL QB Kevin Glenn joins Detroit Catholic Central as admissions community outreach manager

Former CFL quarterback Kevin Glenn has officially moved on from football at least for now.

Glenn has joined Detroit Catholic Central High School as the first admissions community outreach manager in school history.

“I am thrilled to be joining such a prestigious institution with a very rich history,” Glenn said.

“I look forward to helping introduce families who may not have considered Catholic Central as an option to the core goodness, discipline, and knowledge that CC is built on. There are tremendous opportunities here for young men to succeed in high school, college, and beyond if they are ready to accept the challenge.”

The 40-year-old retired from the CFL prior to the 2019 season after backing up Mike Reilly with the Edmonton Eskimos in 2018 when he didn’t see any game action. Glenn’s last season actually playing came in 2017.

He started 17 games for the Riders, throwing for 4,038 yards, 25 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Saskatchewan went 10-8 that year earning a playoff spot as the crossover team and came within one third-and-15 Ricky Ray to James Wilder Jr. conversion of going to the Grey Cup.

Glenn has played 18 CFL seasons making 208 career starts. He has been a member of all nine CFL teams suiting up for seven of them. Over his career, Glenn has totalled 52,867 passing yards, 294 touchdowns and 207 interceptions with a 63.2 completion percentage.

After nearly two decades playing in the league, Glenn knows the CFL well and could be a valuable mentor for younger quarterbacks learning the nuances of the Canadian game. But for now Glenn is putting his focus on students in his hometown of Detroit.
