Toronto city councillor Karen Stintz, who dropped out of the city's mayoral race on Thursday, has a new goal in mind.

In an interview with The National Post, Stintz said that she is interested in applying for commissioner of the Canadian Football League.

 "Well, I am a football fan," Stintz told The Post. "I think that would be a great job. That is definitely a job that I would want to do. It is open now."

Current CFL commissioner Mark Cohon announced this week that he'd be stepping down from the position next spring. Cohon has held the position since 2007.

Stintz, 44, has been a Toronto councillor since 2003 and withdrew as a candidate for the mayoral election after a lack of support and funds.

"This has impacted my financial ability to continue. Absent a more substantial level of support I must conclude my efforts," she said during a news conference.
