Former Texas A&M and TCU QB Kenny Hill signs with the Montreal Alouettes, heads to the city where his dad once shone for the Expos | The Comeback

Kenny Hill is going to try and cut his teeth as a pro QB in the same city that made his dad famous.

Hill isn’t your average CFL practice roster quarterback; his stints at Texas A&M and TCU were quite impressive, and give him a significantly higher profile than your average QB coming in in this role.

These projections leave out Georgia, which played Alabama in the National Championship Game last season. Instead, the Bulldogs are predicted to face TCU in the Sugar Bowl.

He graduated from TCU in 1982 and eventually landed a position as the academic coordinator of TCU athletics in 1988. He was named an associate athletic director of internal affairs in 1999.

He served the last eight years as the department’s associate director of athletics.

In the spring of ‘98, when TCU vice chancellor William Koehler led a push for the school to invest heavily in athletics and effectively cleaned out the department, Hesselbrock was one of the few to remain in a high-ranking capacity.
