In the wake of a controversial email sent from Tom Hicks Junior to a Liverpool supporter over the weekend the owner’s son has now resigned. In his place Tom Hicks has now got Casey Coffman on the board, with two other LFC directors becoming board directors.
The statement from LFC reads:
“Liverpool Football Club today announce that Thomas Hicks Jr has resigned as a director of both the club and its parent company Kop Holdings.
“Three new directors have been elected to the boards of both companies.
“These are Philip Nash, LFC Chief Financial Officer; Ian Ayre, LFC Commercial Director; and Casey Coffman, Executive Vice President of Hicks Holdings.”
