Tyler Tettleton has been signed by the Canadian Football League's Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
After a career that included over 10,000 all-purpose yards and 82 touchdowns, Ohio's most prolific quarterback in program history will continue his career professionally up north across the border. Tettleton holds 27 school records and led Ohio to their first two bowl victories in school history in his sophomore and junior seasons. Last season, Tettleton threw for 2,851 yards and 21 touchdowns leading Ohio to the Beef O'Brady's Bowl.
Hamilton finished 10-8 last season and were the CFL runners-up losing to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Grey Cup. The Ticats season begins June 14 with a preseason matchup against Montreal.
