Bird resigns as Pacers president again
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.
