Whittemore returns to KU football

May 10, 2006


Jayhawk football fans will see a familiar face on the sidelines next season as former standout quarterback Bill Whittemore is returning to KU's football program as a graduate assistant.

Whittemore will focus primarily on offense, and in the past, graduate assistants have been in charge of the program's scout teams.

Whittemore had a similar position, though on defense, at Louisiana Monroe this spring under coach Charlie Weatherbie, but will leave that job for Lawrence after just one semester.

Whittemore played briefly at the professional level, including a preseason tryout with the Atlanta Falcons and a season with the Arena Football League's Nashville Kats.
