The Indiana Pacers announced Monday that CEO and President Donnie Walsh is leaving the franchise at the end of this season and Larry Bird will continue to lead the basketball side of the franchise as President of Basketball Operations. In making the announcement, Pacers co-owner Herb Simon said, “I’ve enjoyed working with Donnie Walsh for 24 years and I’ve gained enormous respect for him as a basketball man and as a person. He ran this franchise with tremendous integrity and honesty and is regarded as one of the very best in the NBA. Larry could not have had a better mentor to prepare him for the work that needs to be done to restore this franchise to the elite level.”
