MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Dolphins say team CEO Mike Dee is leaving to become president and CEO of the San Diego Padres, where he began his career as a sports executive.
Dee announced the move on his Twitter account Wednesday. He has been the CEO of the Dolphins and their home Sun Life Stadium since 2009, and his job change comes about two months after the team was denied public money for a stadium upgrade by Florida's Legislature.
Dee was with the Padres from 1995 through 2002, ending his first stint there as their executive vice president of business affairs. From there, he worked as an executive with the Boston Red Sox before coming to the Dolphins.
Dee says he ``could not turn down this incredible opportunity to return to my roots.''
