Levis agreed, adding that he’ll be using these next few weeks to weigh his options and come up with “realistic expectations” regarding his future. Once he’s ready, a decision will be made public.

“Same with me. I haven’t really had any time to even think about that throughout the season,” Levis said Tuesday. “Now that we have these few weeks between now and the bowl game, it’s a time for me to kind of finally think about what my actual options are and what the realistic expectations are one way or the other.
“I’m going to take this time to figure it out, weigh the pros and cons. When the time comes, I’ll make it official and public.”
