NFL senior vice president Frank Supovitz leaving his post in June


Frank Supovitz, who has overseen major NFL showcases such as the Super Bowl and the season-opening Kickoff, will be departing his position as the league’s senior vice president of events in June, the NFL said Friday.

Supovitz, who is staying on through the 2014 NFL Draft and the selection of a site for Super Bowl 52, will be creating his own event consulting and management firm. He has been in his current role with the NFL since 2005.

“We will miss his leadership and expertise, which has been instrumental in raising the level of all of our events,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a league-issued statement. “From the Draft to Kickoff to the Super Bowl to all the other events he managed, Frank consistently delivered results that were — to use one of his favorite words — spectacular. We look forward to the opportunity to work with him again.”
