KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Jack Steadman, who has been associated with the Kansas City Chiefs since the teams' founding, is stepping down as team vice chairman.

Steadman, 78, was the team's first general manager and also served as executive vice president, president, vice chairman and chairman in 47 years with the NFL franchise. He worked closely with team owner Lamar Hunt, who died last year, from the team's time as the Dallas Texans and then as the Kansas City Chiefs.

"Next to my father Lamar, no single person has had a greater impact on the Chiefs organization than Jack Steadman," Chiefs Chairman Clark Hunt said. "... From facilitating the Chiefs move to Kansas City to assisting in the construction of the Truman Sports Complex, and its upcoming renovation, Jack leaves an indelible mark on the Chiefs."
