He will be succeeded by Randy Rigby, senior vice president of sales and broadcasting and chief marketing officer, who has been with the Jazz for 21 years.
Rigby has been responsible for Jazz and Salt Lake Bees broadcasting. He also is general manager of KJZZ-TV.
``I am excited to take the reins of a well-established group of companies,'' Rigby said in a statement.
The changes will occur this week.
``I look forward to continuing to be a part of the group as a consultant while pursuing outside interests,'' Haslam said.
Besides the Jazz, Miller's sports and entertainment properties include the Bees, a baseball team in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League; EnergySolutions Arena; Fanzz retail apparel stores; All-Star Catering; Megaplex Theatres; The Mayan; Jordan Commons; KJZZ-TV and LHM Advertising. He also is a car dealer.
The Jazz reached the Western Conference finals last season, losing to the champion San Antonio Spurs.
