The New Orleans Hornets, who formally came under the domain of owner Tom Benson on Friday, will not retain president Hugh Weber, the man who helped guide the team through 17 months of league ownership and helped steer the franchise toward Benson's purchase and its stability through 2024 with a renegotiated lease agreement.
Taking over for Weber will be Dennis Lauscha, who is also president of the New Orleans Saints. He will be now be president of both organizations and oversee the Saints and Hornets operations.
Benson outlined the team's management structure on Monday in a meeting with Hornets' staff members at the Saints Airline Drive headquarters, though he met with Weber prior to meeting with the rest of Hornets' staff.
Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis was placed in charge of oversight of the Hornets' basketball operation in addition to the Saints football operations.
