The University of Saskatchewan Huskies are in need of a new football coach.
After 33 years, Brian Towriss has announced he is stepping down.
Towriss, a native of Moose Jaw, has won a Canadian university record 196 games, plus 11 Canada West conference championships and 3 Vanier Cup titles.
He has also seen 47 of his players graduate to the CFL.
“I want to thank all of those that have supported me throughout my career at the University of Saskatchewan and all of the fans in Huskie Nation,” said Towriss in a prepared statement.
“I have had a fulfilling and wonderful career here. It wouldn’t have been possible without the support of my wife, Vicki, and my two wonderful children, Kellie and Jake. I have also had the pleasure of working with a loyal group of coaches and support staff that have shared my vision and passion for the program for a longtime. I am proud to say that we won a lot of football games and we did it with honesty, respect and hard work. I wish the program continued success and a return to national prominence.”
A search is underway to find Towriss’s replacement with an announcement expected on that replacement in the New Year.
