OAKLAND, Calif., May 11 (UPI) -- Amy Trask, chief executive officer of the Oakland Raiders, said Saturday she's leaving the NFL team.
Trask had been CEO since 1997 and had been with the team since 1987, making her a pioneer for women in pro sports management.
"Having honored a commitment that I made to effectuate a smooth transition and transfer of control, I no longer wish to remain with the organization," Trask wrote in a statement provided the media.
"For over a quarter of a century, it was my honor and my privilege to work for the Raiders. I will forever appreciate the opportunity afforded me by Al Davis."
Davis died in 2011 and the team is now owned by his son, Mark.
