Officer Zack Mahoney will be trading in his orange and blue (and platinum) for blue and gold (and a mountie hat) as the former Syracuse Orange quarterback has signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL.

Mahoney was a fan favorite on the Orange, working his way from walk-on to consistent contributor after injuries continued to hit the ‘Cuse starting quarterbacks. Playing 25 career games, Mahoney passed for 1,949 yards and 18 touchdowns. Mahoney is a Canadian citizen and had entered the CFL draft after his Syracuse Pro Day.

Mahoney will leave behind plenty of dad jokes and a record setting performance against Pitt, a game where he passed for 5 touchdowns and 440 yards, adding two scores on the ground to set a school record for total touchdowns in a game.

Congratulations Zack!
