Arizona Cardinals chief operating officer Ron Minegar plans to step down this spring, the team confirmed to 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station on Friday.

“Having finished my 20th season with the organization, this is the right time to move on from this incredibly rewarding chapter of my career,” a statement from Minegar via the team read. “The privilege of working with so many hard-working and talented individuals has enriched my life beyond measure. I will be forever grateful to Mr. B and Michael for giving me that chance.

“While I’m excited to explore the new challenges ahead, I will always treasure the experiences of the last 20 years and continue to be among the Cardinals’ biggest fans.”

Minegar joined the team in 2000 after having previously worked for Disney Sports.

According to the Cardinals’ website, Minegar has been responsible for the Cardinals’ business operations, overseeing marketing, business development, communications, ticket sales, community relations and more. He was also part of the project team when State Farm Stadium was being designed and constructed.

“Ron’s impact on the organization over the last two decades has been invaluable and immeasurable,” Cardinals president Michael Bidwill said in a statement. “He joined us at a time in our team’s history that was pivotal in so many ways. The leadership and counsel that Ron provided during that time has been critical. We appreciate his extraordinary contributions and wish him great success moving forward.”

Minegar was arrested back in August on a DUI charge. The Cardinals suspended him for six weeks without pay and fined him $200,000. A statement from the team at the time said he wouldn’t be allowed to return to the team until first completing other steps, including counseling, community service and more.
