Fiesta Bowl cuts ties with 4 former chairmen

As the Fiesta Bowl continues to repair its image there’s word the Bowl Championship Series game has cut ties with four former chairmen of the event.

Bowl officials told The Arizona Republic it will no longer allow Chuck Johnson, Steve Horrell, Mike Allen and David Tilson to serve as volunteer “life directors.”

The Republic reports the four at one point had close ties to ousted Chief Executive John Junker.

The long-time Fiesta Bowl leader was fired in late March after the bowl released a 276-page report from an internal investigation that found evidence of potentially illegal employee conduct, spending irregularities and lax board oversight.
