Miami football career passing leader No. 1: Brad Kaaya
- 9,968 passing yards
- 69 passing touchdowns
- 24 interceptions
Got to have Kaaya now!
It’s depressing how close Brad Kaaya got to 10,000 yards passing in his Miami career, but going pro before his would-be senior season ultimately cost him that honor and didn’t end up going the way the Los Angeles native wanted it to. Regardless, Kaaya is the all-time leading passer in Hurricanes history, and the fact that he did it in just three seasons makes him an undisputed all-time great for the U, under center or otherwise.
State of the U’s Roman Marciante got word directly from Kaaya that the QB isn’t sweating not coming back, anyway.
"“So going into the interview I knew the answer to the question but I still loved his response when I asked him anyway, ‘What if you came back your senior year?’ His response was a perfect meme that reflects his mature ownership of the moment wrapped in his innate sense of humor and quick wit,” Marciante wrote before being delivered the following movie-script line from the L.A.-born Kaaya, “You either die a hero….or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”"
Kaaya will forever be a hero for the Hurricanes’ faithful.
