Kyle Rowley is back for his third stint with the Spokane Shock.

Rowley, who helped Spokane to an arenafootball2 title in 2006 and an Arena Football League crown in 2010 before losing the starting job to Erik Meyer in 2011, officially rejoined the Shock on Tuesday. With Meyer on injured reserve and Adam Froman tossing six interceptions in two-plus games, Spokane brought back Rowley, who was released by Pittsburgh prior to the season opener.

“Kyle knows this offense and I expect him to compete for the starting job,” coach Andy Olson said. “It’s rare to have a veteran with his experience available this late in the season and so we felt like we had to jump on the opportunity.”

Rowley is Spokane’s franchise leader in passing yards (8,691), passing touchdowns (182) and rushing touchdowns (14).

 

Spokane faces Arizona in Phoenix on Friday.
