NEW YORK (AP) -Scott O'Neil was hired Tuesday as president of Madison Square Garden Sports, replacing Steve Mills, who came under fire last summer in the embarrassing sexual harassment trial involving former Knicks coach Isiah Thomas.
Both Thomas and former MSG executive Anucha Browne Sanders, who was awarded $11.5 million after suing Thomas and the Garden, reported to Mills. Mills had already lost power in April when Donnie Walsh was hired to replace Thomas as team president. It was announced then that Walsh would report directly to MSG chairman James Dolan.
Mills was reassigned to president of business operations for MSG Sports teams and will report to O'Neil.
O'Neil was formerly a senior vice president at the NBA, overseeing teams' marketing and business operations. He will be in charge of all business operations for the Knicks, Rangers and Liberty, as well as sponsorship sales for the teams, the arena and its events.
