Vero Beach, FL (Sports Network) - The Los Angeles Dodgers announced the resignation of president Bob Graziano and executive vice president Kris Rone Friday.
The moves come a month after the team was sold to Frank and Jamie McCourt of Boston.
Graziano was with the organization for the past 18 years, serving as president since 1998, but was expecting a change under new ownership. He was responsible for the day-to-day business operations of the team.
"Bob and the McCourts have determined that Bob will not be with the ballclub in the future and Bob terminated his employment as a result of their discussions," said senior vice president Derrick Hall.
Rone, in charge of sales and marketing, ended his five-year tenure with the Dodgers as well.
"It was Kris' choice to leave and this gives the McCourts the opportunity to determine who will fill the role and what it will entail," Hall added.
