Dolphins CEO Mike Dee steps down

Dolphins CEO or not, you have to love that tie. - Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

The Phinsider this morning learned that Dolphins CEO Mike Dee will leave the team in order to take a similar role with Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres.

Looks like there's CEO position available in Miami.

Dolphins CEO Mike Dee this morning announced that he will step down from his current position and take a job as president and CEO of Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres. Dee is no stranger to Southern California, having previously worked for the Padres. In 2009, he stepped down from his gig as chief operating officer of the Boston Red Sox in order to take the Dolphins' CEO position.

Per an article written by the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, Dee will have "unquestioned power in San Diego, where he will oversee the business side of the team and also have baseball operations under his control."

The Dolphins' business model is to split the franchise into a football operations side run by General Manager Jeff Ireland and a business side that is run by the CEO," Salguero wrote. "Both answer to owner Stephen Ross, but not each other."

Early reports indicate that the Dolphins have turned to New Jersey-based headhunter Turnkey Sports and Entertainment in their search for a new CEO. Don't expect said search to interfere with Carl Peterson-as-CEO rumors, however.
