After 10 years, Dennis Haslam is stepping down as the president of the company to pursue personal business opportunities.

Haslam and Miller grew up together and have been close friends for more than 55 years and business associates for dozens of years.

Miller called the move bittersweet.

"The hole that I speak of and void is not just on a business basis, in fact even more so on a personal basis," he said.

Haslam's last day will be this Saturday, and current vice president Randy Rigby will take over the role as president.

Miller says with the exception of those close to Haslam, he believes the transition will have little effect on the team and the fans.
