The former Tampa Bay BuccaneersSources confirmed to ESPNs Mark Schlabach that the executive who was hired to be LIV Golfs chief operating officer has resigned after a year, as the Saudi-backed rival circuit moves towards a league format.
The New York Times first reported the news.
Atul Khosla was expected as the leader of LIV Golfs franchise model of 12 four-man teams, in which both players and the LIV golf League would have equity.
Khosla had earlier informed players and agents that he would be stepping down. Greg Norman, the LIV commissioner, confirmed Fridays news in a statement to The Times.
Norman stated, Atul Khosla made the decision to move on after LIVs inaugural season was over. We respect A.K. We respect A.K.
