Quinn steps aside as FC Dallas president

FC Dallas have announced that Doug Quinn has stepped down as President and CEO of the club.

Quinn arrived in Frisco in 2010 but has decided to step aside from his role for family reasons, leaving the Texan outfit in good health from a supporter-base point of view.

"After much consideration, I have decided to resign from FC Dallas to spend more time with my two beautiful daughters," Quinn said.

"I will be forever grateful to Clark and the Hunt family for giving me an opportunity to lead this great franchise, and I sincerely appreciate the hard work and dedication shown every day by the FC Dallas family."

Clark Hunt, chairman of Dallas owner Hunt Sports Group, thanked Quinn for his contribution to the club which included more than 1.7million fans walking through the doors at FC Dallas Stadium in 2012.

"Doug has significantly improved the operations of FC Dallas, and the club is well-positioned for future success. We greatly appreciate his many contributions to the club and support his decision to step down to focus on his family and pursue other opportunities."
