Cowboys Stadium manager steps aside

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.

    I’m sure he did a great job. It wasn’t what he did that was the problem. It was what he failed to do that was the problem.

    I guess he had to leave before the roof fell on him.

    The Super Bowl Fiasco made me lose faith in Goodell and ownership in general…it wasn’t so much the incident, but how they responded. They treated the fans like dirt.

    Jerry Jones doesn’t plan on replacing him. He is saving up for few more face-lifts and a new rack for the Mrs.

    Times are tough for these owners during a lockout…

    I think “heckua job” would have been more appropriate.

    Almost as “phenomenal” of a job as he and his old man have done destroying what Jimmy Johnson built there 20-some years ago.

    Yeah he did a great job making the city upgrade their snow and ice removal equipment to be used for that one day in the next 20 years!! Of course the seating fiasco is a different story, but any loyal follower of this site knows that this article was based on Flo having to walk on ice!
