Dave Kaval's seven-year run as president of the San Jose Earthquakes appears to be over.
Kaval, who also became president of the A's last year, will be replaced as president of the Quakes, according to multiple reports.
The move is being made to allow Kaval to focus on the A's efforts to build a new stadium.
The Earthquakes will reportedly name Tom Fox, former executive for English Premiere League teams Arsenal and Aston Villa, as new team president.
“For us, it was all about finding the right person. For the long-term, it was the best. But it pulled me very thin in two locations,” Kaval told The Mercury News on Wednesday.
The A's issued a statement to The Chronicle regarding Kaval's transition:
"In his brief time as A's president, Dave has implemented a number of initiatives to increase our organization's profile and connect with our fan base. Under this leadership, the A's are committed to three long-term goals: grow our community impact, build a new ballpark in Oakland and continue the tradition of championship-caliber baseball. This transition from the Quakes will allow him to focus solely on accomplishing these goals."
Kaval and the A's have made it known that they plan to announce the site of a new A's ballpark later this year.
