From a statement released by the club:

Doug Quinn has stepped down as president and CEO of FC Dallas, the club announced today.

Quinn has been on administrative leave from the club since November. He said the decision to resign will allow him to spend more time with his family.

“After much consideration, I have decided to resign from FC Dallas to spend more time with my two beautiful daughters,” Quinn said.  “I will be forever grateful to Clark and the Hunt family for giving me an opportunity to lead this great franchise, and I sincerely appreciate the hard work and dedication shown every day by the FC Dallas family.”

Since joining FC Dallas in 2010, Quinn helped grow the Club’s supporters’ base. In 2012, FC Dallas set a single-season record with more than 1.7 million patrons at FC Dallas Stadium and Complex.

“Doug has significantly improved the operations of FC Dallas, and the club is well-positioned for future success,” said Clark Hunt, chairman of Hunt Sports Group. “We greatly appreciate his many contributions to the club and support his decision to step down to focus on his family and pursue other opportunities.”

Quinn took a leave of absence in November after being arrested for allegedly hitting and attempting to choke his wife in New York City. The statement goes on to say that the search for a new president and CEO will begin immediately, headed by Hunt Sports Group VP Dan Hunt.
