Southern Illinois Miners Executive Vice-President to resign
Marion, IL – The Southern Illinois Miners announced the resignation of their Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer Erik Haag Wednesday. Haag has been with the Miners since the organization’s inception in August 2006.
Haag leaves the Southern Illinois Miners for a position with Total Sports Entertainment and will be relocating to South Bend, IN. Total Sports Entertainment is a sports software and consulting business.
“Taking this position will allow me to work in the sports industry as a consultant for existing sports franchises as well as building franchises like we did here in Southern Illinois,” said Haag. “This move also allows my wife, Susan, to continue her career as her office is near our prior home in South Bend.”
“Since 2006 we have had the goal of bringing a quality sports venue to the area of Southern Illinois in Marion,” said Simmons. “With Erik’s assistance we have built this beautiful stadium and have a wonderful staff and team that make Rent One Park a truly fun and family friendly entertainment location. While we will certainly miss Erik’s leadership, we are happy for him and his family as he continues to work in the sports industry.”
Simmons also presented Haag with a commemorative baseball bat in appreciation for his valued contributions.
