FC Dallas CEO Quinn steps down

FC Dallas president and CEO Doug Quinn has stepped down from his position, the club announced on Wednesday.

Quinn has been on administrative leave from the club since November. He said the decision to resign will allow him to spend more time with his family.

"After much consideration, I have decided to resign from FC Dallas to spend more time with my two beautiful daughters," Quinn said. "I will be forever grateful to Clark and the Hunt family for giving me an opportunity to lead this great franchise, and I sincerely appreciate the hard work and dedication shown every day by the FC Dallas family."

Since joining FC Dallas in 2010, Quinn helped grow the club's fan base. In 2012, FC Dallas set a single-season record with more than 1.7 million fans at FC Dallas Stadium and Complex.

"Doug has significantly improved the operations of FC Dallas, and the club is well-positioned for future success," said Clark Hunt, chairman of Hunt Sports Group. "We greatly appreciate his many contributions to the club and support his decision to step down to focus on his family and pursue other opportunities."

Prior to joining FC Dallas, Quinn served as president of MLS affiliate Soccer United Marketing, where he led MLS's agreement with Adidas and helped increase league revenues.
