Jack Hill, the stadium manager for Cowboys Stadium, has resigned and will leave the position on June 1, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Hill has been the public face of the stadium and handled the transformation for Super Bowl XLV, which was one of the most embarrassing and poorly planned episodes in recent NFL history.

Hill asked for permits for temporary seating during the Super Bowl, and assured the job would be done in time.  It wasn’t completed, leaving many fans out of luck.

In a not-so-shocking development, Hill and Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones say that the Super Bowl fiasco wasn’t part of Hill’s decision to leave.  Right.

Jones said Hill did a “phenomenal” job.
