Bro Canada! Stephen Garcia signs with CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

Stephen Garcia fans rejoice! Arguably the greatest Bro quarterback ever to be kicked out of the South Carolina Gamecocks football program has found a home with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

"The announcement, made on the team's Facebook page, was simple: "Quarterback Stephen Garcia has been added to the Alouettes roster. Details to come."

Garcia was in Montreal at the end of May during the team's mini-camp."

Garcia was looking at a future outside of football after being passed over in the 2012 NFL Draft. Well, multiple suspensions and issues with adult beverages will do that to you. In fact, Garcia was even thinking about joining the military at one point.

Hopefully Garcia's football career in the Great White North won't be as short as that other Bro QB Tate Forcier, who was cut by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats after a disastrous pre-season appearance. Hopefully Garcia will be able to show why he gave Gamecock fans a lot of thrills on the gridiorn in Canada, and not any of the drama that made them (and Steve Spurrier) wince.
