BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) The president of the Chicago Fire soccer club is stepping down.
Chicago Fire owner Andrew Hauptman announced the departure of Julian Posada on Wednesday in a letter on the soccer team's website. Hauptman says the club won't replace Posada. He says Posada's duties will be taken over by other staff.
Hauptman says Posada is leaving to ``pursue other opportunities.'' Posada will continue working for the Fire as a consultant in 2013. He held the job as president for more than two years.
The Chicago Fire team is a member of Major League Soccer.
