Continuing in today’s vein of people quitting things that they’ve been persistently rumoured to be on the verge of quitting, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment CEO Tim Leiweke has announced that he will be leaving his post. The CBC reports that MLSE expects to have a new chief executive by June 30, 2015, or whenever a successor is found (whatever that means). Leiweke hasn’t even been in the job for two years, but his tenure has been marked by some significant highlights: under his leadership MLSE hired the Raptors a seemingly excellent new GM, acquired some major talent for Toronto FC and openly picked fights with Rob Ford. He will be missed. Here’s our Q&A with him from when he first took the job.
