NEW YORK (AP) — The Jets have announced Neil Glat is stepping down as team president and will transition to a new role as a senior adviser.
Glat has been with the Jets since 2012 and was responsible for all of the team’s off-field activities, including establishing business and community partnerships, helping design and unveil New York’s new uniforms and logo, expanding fan engagement opportunities and launching the team’s Jets 360 content platform.
“I greatly appreciate and thank him for his significant contributions and omnipresent professionalism,” Jets Chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson said in a statement. “He will be missed.”
The team says in a release issued Friday it will announce its plans for the organization’s next steps in the next few days.
Glat joined the Jets in April 2012 after working at the NFL the previous 15 years, including as the league’s senior vice president of corporate development.
“I want to thank the Johnson family for giving me an amazing opportunity to be part of their truly special organization,” Glat said in a statement.
“Woody and Christopher are terrific leaders, and were outstanding mentors to me. I am extremely grateful to the both of them. I also want to express my sincere gratitude to all the outstanding people who are part of the Jets family. There’s never a good time to leave, but it’s the right time for me to take on new challenges.”
