The Memphis Business Journal has the scoop:
HoopsLP, the parent company of the Memphis Grizzlies and FedExForum, has hired Michael Humes as chief revenue officer, a newly created position within the organization. Humes was previously COO for the Chicago Fire franchise of Major League Soccer.
I'm not sure if there will be more to the story but this space might get an update or two. I'll say that I met Mike prior to Hot Time In Old Town's existence and he was very friendly and approachable. I don't know him outside of that but being very friendly and approachable is a great trait to see in any Chicago Fire personnel. Hot Time In Old Town wishes him luck in his new position. We'll be sure to update you on any hiring for COO or if the Fire plan on leaving the position empty.
