Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke recently presided over a shakeup that saw G.M. Tim Ruskell and coach Jim Mora leave, and coach Pete Carroll and G.M. John Schneider arrive. Leiweke now says he won’t be joining Ruskell and Mora as former employees of the team.
Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times reports that Leiweke is not a candidate to become CEO of the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning.
“I know a little bit about what they’re doing, and something good is
going to emerge there,” Leiweke told Cristodero. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for
the right person.”
Leiweke said he’s fully aware of the details of the search, which is being coordinated by Jac Sperling, one of Leiweke’s friends.
“I’m happy doing what I’m doing,” Leiweke said.
And Mora would say that what Leiweke has been doing includes cramming a knife deep into the former coach’s back. And Mora probably would not be wrong about that.
