Andrew Harris will not be back with the BC Lions, GM and head coach Wally Buono announced yesterday.

Buono broke the news in an interview with Don Taylor and Barry MacDonald on the TSN 1040 afternoon show.

“Obviously last year was a very difficult year for him and it was very difficult for the football team too. At this point I’m not saying that we’re going to make him an offer, I don’t believe that we will. I think at this point it’s time for the club to look at doing things differently.”

“When you look at the 8 years he’s had here, he’s had 8 great years.”

Harris played six seasons with the Lions. He was a key member of the 2011 Grey Cup championship team and was named the game’s Top Canadian. Harris was a CFL All-Star last season and will have no problem finding another team to play for.

Harris took to Twitter following the news:

Not every player would have shown that kind of class.
