By Community | June 2, 2014

The Italian had shared the position with Softball’s Don Porter but was elected lone representative of that role last month. 

Other notable changes include ESPN chief George Bodenheimer departing the sports broadcaster after 33 years with the company and LA Clippers President Andy Roesner leaving the team following the racist remarks from owner Donald Sterling.
