After 36 years with the Kansas City Chiefs, team president Denny Thum has resigned.

The team announced the move today.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working for the best franchise in the NFL,” Thum said in a team-issued release. “I appreciate every opportunity the Hunt family has afforded me and my family and I wish the Kansas City Chiefs all the success they deserve in the future.”

Thum began working for the team as an accountant, way back in 1974. Team chairman Clark Hunt has added the title of CEO to his office door, and Hunt “will continue” to lead the football and business operations of the Chiefs.

As we understand the division of authority in Kansas City, the duties held by former G.M. and president Carl Peterson were split between G.M. Scott Pioli (who took over the football operation) and Thum (who ran the business side of the franchise)

No word on why Thum stepped down. After so many years in the service of our favorite football team, we wish him the very best in wherever his career takes him next.
