Hamilton Tiger-Cats Senior Director of Personnel and Co-Manager of Football Operations Shawn Burke has withdrawn his name from consideration for the Montreal Alouettes GM position, according to a report from Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette.

Zurkowsky reported Burke was the leading candidate for the position but has decided to remain with the Tiger-Cats.

Burke was appointed to his position, alongside Drew Allemang, last off-season when Eric Tillman left his post as Ticats GM. Burke has been with the Ticats since 2007.
