[MLS SPOTLIGHT] Dan Hunt, FC Dallas interim president since the departure of Doug Quinn, was named the team president, overseeing the team's business operations and FC Dallas Youth. Hunt had been serving as interim president since November 2012.

Clark Hunt, the FC Dallas chairman, appointed his brother to the position.

“It is truly a personal thrill to introduce my brother Dan as the next president of FC Dallas,” Clark Hunt said in a statement. “In addition to his lifelong passion for the sport of soccer, Dan has been actively engaged in the operations of FCD and Major League Soccer for the last several years, and he did an outstanding job guiding the day-to-day operations of the club in 2013. I know he will continue to work very hard to make FC Dallas the best in MLS.”

Since Dan Hunt took over, FC Dallas secured Toyota as the new stadium naming-rights partner at the club's Frisco facility. FC Dallas averaged 15,374 fans a game -- its highest mark since moving into its current home in 2005 and its highest mark the first year of its existence in 1996 at the Cotton Bowl.

Quinn formally stepped down as president and CEO of FC Dallas in February 2013. He had been on administrative leave since November 2012 after he was arrested in New York for allegedly hitting and attempting to choke his wife in a hotel room. The charges were dismissed in June 2013 on the request of prosecutors after an investigation about the incident at the Alex Hotel was inconclusive.
