[MLS SPOTLIGHT] Dan Hunt, FC Dallas interim president since the departure of Doug

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

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.
