Bird re­signs as Pac­ers pres­i­dent again

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS — Larry Bird made it of­fi­cial Mon­day and an­nounced his res­ig­na­tion as the In­di­ana Pac­ers pres­i­dent of bas­ket­ball op­er­a­tions. It’s the sec­ond time in five years he has walked away from In­di­ana’s top front of­fice po­si­tion. Gen­eral man­ager Kevin Pritchard will re­place Bird as the Pac­ers’ top de­ci­sion-maker. Bird, 60, says sim­ply that he wanted to step away from the full-time job. He says it has noth­ing to do with his health or the Na­tional Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion team.
