Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo is expected to announce his retirement from football at a news conference next week.

TSN's Dave Naylor confirmed the news after the Alouettes released a statement saying that Calvillo would be providing an update on his career next Tuesday.

The 41-year-old pivot played seven games last season before he suffered a concussion and missed the remainder of the year. The Alouettes used Josh Neiswander, Troy Smith, and Tanner Marsh in Calvillo's absence and finished the regular season with an 8-10 record.

Montreal lost the Eastern Division semifinal to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Calvillo played his rookie season with the Las Vegas Posse in 1994 and then played three years in Hamilton. He signed as a free agent with the Alouettes in March, 1998 and became one of the most prolific quarterbacks in league history.
