Tim Leiweke Will Leave MLSE By June 30, 2015

via TSN,

Tim Leiweke is stepping down as President and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment as of June 30, 2015.

Larry Tanenbaum Chairman of MLSE announced today that Leiweke informed the board he will continue as of that date or until a new successor is found.

"Under Tim's leadership, MLSE has made a number of key moves to strengthen our organization on the path to championship success," said Mr. Tanenbaum. "We look forward to working closely with Tim to build on this foundation and further accelerate our momentum as we seek a new leader for MLSE."

This comes on the heals of...

"Not true," he wrote via email. "Not here forever, but very focused and very committed for the season at hand. Not thinking about long-term yet."

Only logical conclusion if you go by what Leiweke said… He was forced out.
