Starks named president of company arm that runs Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Steve Starks has been named the president of Miller Sports Properties, the arm of the company that runs the Utah Jazz.

The move is the latest detail of the corporate restructuring that includes the construction of a board of directors that will replace Greg Miller as CEO of the Larry H. Miller Group of companies. Group president Clark Whitworth made the announcement Wednesday.

Jim Olson had been acting president on an interim basis and will remain as CEO of the sports branch.

Starks has been president of Miller Retail Properties and will remain in that position. He replaces Steve Miller, who stepped down Monday along with Greg Miller.

Spokeswoman Linda Luchetti previously said the Jazz will not be affected by the restructuring of the parent company.
