The Winnipeg Sun ran this last night:
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have asked veteran centre Obby Khan to retire, the Winnipeg Sun learned late Tuesday night.
Khan will apparently announce the decision that he has reluctantly accepted at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon.
Khan, who lives in Winnipeg year-round, declined to confirm what he planned to announce but did indicate that it could be the last time reporters talk to him.
Khan, 31, lost his job as a starter late in the 2011 CFL season, but regained it for the playoffs.
Khan was one of the club's most consistent offensive linemen since the Bombers acquired him in the Ottawa dispersal draft, but was forced to battle back from some serious health problems in 2007. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Ottawa native returned to action during the 2008 CFL season and has long been one of the fan favourites.
And it seems to have been confirmed by Doug Brown's tweets:
One of the most charitable and driven players I have ever met, @obbykhan60, retires today. #GoBombers #CFL
With all the physical hurdles he was forced 2 overcome, never once saw @obbykhan60 feel sorry for himself. Congrats on a tremendous career.
All the best to Obby.
