The Coyote was first introduced in public at a San Antonio Spurs game in 1983. He's known for his slapstick comedy routine, including impromptu interactions with game officials during time-outs, rehearsed skits and dance numbers with the Silver Dancers (the Spurs cheerleading team), as well as for his trick filled antics, such as riding a unicycle, pulling his eyes off, dribbling a ball with his feet or spinning a ball on a pen.
Outside of his presence in arena at games the Coyote performs at over 400 community appearances per year, which is noted as being more than any other mascot in the NBA. Over the years he has also been featured in numerous local San Antonio area TV commercials and appeared on national morning shows, including Live with Regis and Kathie Lee.
The Coyote was named Best Mascot of the Year, for 2005, by the website Gameops.com in 2006. In recognition of his hard work on and off the court, he was inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame in 2007.
