The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are looking for a new Pigskin Pete.

Dan Black, who has carried on the Oskee Wee Wee tradition during Ticats games for the last 10 years, has resigned from the post, effective immediately.

In a Facebook post, Black says, “Family is my focus and I need to dedicate all the time and energy to that now.”

The Tiger-Cats say they are now looking for a new Pigskin Pete.

Black took over from Paul Weiler, who played the role between 1976 to 2006.
