According to the Oakland Tribune, Oakland Raiders CEO Amy Task resigned on Saturday. She was the only CEO in the NFL.
A fierce advocate for late owner Al Davis, Trask found her role reshaped under Mark Davis, who took over for his father upon his death in October 2011.
Since the arrival of general manager Reggie McKenzie in January 2012, Trask’s primary duties were to generate revenue through marketing and ticket sales and help the organization in its quest for a new stadium.
The Raiders are in the final year of their lease at O.co Coliseum. Trask has publicly pushed for a new stadium on the current site, with no deal on the horizon.
In an email to reporters, Trask said, “Earlier today, I informed Mark Davis of my decision to leave the Raiders. Having honored a commitment that I made to effectuate a smooth transition and transfer of control, I no longer wish to remain with the organization.
“For over a quarter of a century, it was my honor and my privilege to work for the Raiders. I will forever appreciate the opportunity afforded me by Al Davis.”
Trask joined the Raiders in 1987 in the legal department with the club in Los Angeles and was named CEO in 1997.
The Raiders are a totally different looking organization with Mark Davis in control.
