New York Jets team president Neil Glat steps down from his longtime position on Friday, instead opting for a senior advisor role.
The New York Jets organization continues its drastic makeover.
On Friday, the team announced the latest shakeup. Team president Neil Glat is “stepping down” from his post to, instead, take on a senior advisor role.
“Neil spearheaded the implementation of many successful new initiatives and fan-friendly offerings during his time with us,” said New York Jets Chairman and CEO, Christopher Johnson. “He also worked tirelessly on behalf of the organization and for the fans. I greatly appreciate and thank him for his significant contributions and omnipresent professionalism. He will be missed.”
Glat had served in the president role since 2012, taking on all business-side responsibilities.
“I want to thank The Johnson Family for giving me an amazing opportunity to be part of their truly special organization. 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.” Glat said.
This is just the latest in a series of drastic changes seen at Florham Park since Adam Gase arrived. It’s unclear as to why the move was executed, and, more likely than not, won’t be revealed anytime soon.
The Jets open up the 2019 season on Sept. 8, 2019, when they welcome in the Buffalo Bills for Week 1 action.
