Kyle French announces departure from Badgers program after this season


Last week the Badger faithful saw Kyle French miss a 38-yard field goal attempt against Northwestern. It led to Jack Russell taking the rest of the kicks for the game and a new plan to have Russell be the kicker of choice this week at Illinois. 

However, it appears that French's time with the program is coming to an end at the end of this season, at least according to his Facebook post on Thursday night: 

French, who was to be a senior next season will no longer be a part of the team and he went out with class, during what can only be described as a tough situation for all involved.

However, that won't be the only change coming in the kicking department, as the Badgers apparently are DEAD SERIOUS about using linebacker Chris Borland to kick long field goals this weekend at Illinois
