Stephen Garcia signs with Arena Football team
Err, he’s going to a place where many a desperate player has gone: the Arena Football League.
The Tampa Bay Storm announced on Monday that they signed Garcia.
“The Storm is always looking for local talent that can make an impact on our roster,” vice president of football operations Jeff Gooch said in a statement. “Stephen is from the Tampa Bay area and will help add to the level of competition at the quarterback position.”
I’m surprised they made the announcement on Monday. They weren’t worried about stealing the thunder from the national championship game?
Garcia played four years at South Carolina and is third in the school’s history with 7,597 career passing yards. He was suspended FIVE times by Steve Spurrier before finally being kicked off the team. Garcia had a drinking problem and also reportedly failed a marijuana test, leading to his dismissal.
