NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Nashville Soccer Club has introduced its official team mascot that pays homage to one of the Music City Center’s most iconic guests -- a coyote.

The club officially revealed Tempo the Coyote on Wednesday – two years to the day that a coyote wandered into an exhibit hall at the Music City Center and made its way into a bathroom.

Remember this? A coyote wandered into the Music City Center in January 2019.

The building’s security team secured the canine into a bathroom, where Metro Nashville Police Officer Brenna Hosey was able to remove him safely. Hosey was also one of the police officers who helped evacuate families before the Christmas Day bombing in downtown Nashville.

Tempo will make his Nashville SC debut this season, joining fellow mascots Gnash from the Nashville Predators, T-Rac from the Tennessee Titans and Booster from the Nashville Sounds in Music City.
