MOUNT PLEASANT - The Chicago Bears have selected former Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Dan LeFevour was the 12th pick in the sixth round and the 181st selection overall. He is the fourth quarterback in school history to be drafted and the first since Gary Hogeboom in 1980.

LeFevour joins five other Chippewas currently active in the NFL. He is the first Chippewa to be selected in the NFL Draft since 2007 and the 32nd overall.

LeFevour is the NCAA Bowl Subdivision's all-time leader in total touchdowns with 150 (102 passing, 47 rushing, one receiving), and he ranks second in Bowl Subdivision history with 15,853 career yards of total offense (12,905 passing, 2,948 rushing).

He holds Mid-American Conference career records for total offense, passing yards, touchdown passes, completions (1,171) and attempts (1,763). In Bowl Subdivision history, LeFevour ranks fourth in completions, eighth in touchdown passes and ninth in passing yards.

LeFevour led Central Michigan to three conference titles, four bowl game appearances and two bowl victories in four seasons as a starter. CMU was 36-15 in games LeFevour started.

Named the MAC's Vern Smith Leadership Award winner as a senior, LeFevour was a two-time MAC Offensive Player of the Year honoree, three-time All-MAC first team selection and four-time Academic All-MAC choice.
