career summary for Hamilton Tiger-Cats: "Bernie Custis was the first black quarterback in the CFL. After his retirement, for 31 years, he was a highly successful coach at all levels of football in Canada. He was named to the Canadian Fooball Hall of Fame as a builder in 1998."
This site is scary. Bernie was my middle school Vice Principal (Ancaster Senior) and coach. An absolutely amazing man that is hopefully getting the credit due him for his contributions to athletics in general and more specifically, the young men and women he has influenced. Gregg Barrow
