Former CFL quarterback Jonathan Crompton will reportedly no longer serve as the offensive coordinator at Bishop’s University. The news was broken by Phil Malo, whose tweet has been translated from French below.

Big news from the Bishop’s Gaiters. Former Alouettes QB Jonathan Crompton, who had just been named the team’s offensive coordinator, would ultimately no longer leave the United States, for personal reasons. His replacement would already be chosen and announced soon.

Crompton was hired as the offensive coordinator at Bishop’s in January.

The 34-year-old signed with the Edmonton Elks in 2013 and made appearances in seven games before signing with the Montreal Alouettes the following year. He played 11 regular season games for Montreal, taking the Alouettes from a 1-7 start to a 9-9 record, clinching a playoff berth in the process.

He finished his CFL career with 3,262 passing yards, 19 touchdowns, and 18 interceptions along with 177 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown.

Crompton retired from the league in 2017 and returned to North Carolina where he started training high school quarterbacks. He joined the Toronto Argonauts in 2019 to serve as an assistant under offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jacques Chapdelaine before serving as the offensive coordinator at West Henderson High School in North Carolina.

The six-foot-four, 225-pound passer played in 35 games in college for the Tennessee Volunteers. In his senior year under Lane Kiffin, he completed 58.3 percent of his passes for 2,800 yards, 27 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He closed out the 2009 campaign ranked third in the SEC in completions, pass attempts, and touchdowns.

Crompton was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Over the next few years, the North Carolina native was signed by the New England Patriots, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Washington Football Team.
