Titans president Underwood retires, Nihill promoted

Tennessee Titans president and CEO Steve Underwood retired from his full-time duties Friday after a four-decade relationship with the franchise.Senior vice president of business operations Burke Nihill was promoted to replace Underwood, who will remain with the team as a senior counselor.”When Steve informed me that he was ready to step away from a full-time role, it was immediately clear to me that Burke was the best choice for the job,” controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk said in a release. “Since starting with the club as the General Counsel, Burke has continued to take on additional responsibilities to the point that he has become an invaluable resource and an absolute superstar for our organization.”I have great confidence in him and his leadership, and I know that the future is bright for the team.”Underwood, who turns 69 in October, originally retired in 2011 but returned in March 2015 to serve as interim president and CEO.
