The Tournament of Roses President Rick Jackson issued a statement Thursday to announce Scott McKibben, citing personal reasons, would be resigning as executive director.

"William B. Flinn, the Tournament's longstanding chief operating officer, will assume the role of interim executive director," the statement said. "With our excellent volunteers, our very capable management committee and Tournament of Roses staff support, we anticipate a smooth transition leading to a successful 123rd Tournament of Roses Parade and 98th Rose Bowl Game."

McKibben could not immediately be reached for comment.

McKibben was named Rose Bowl executive director in 2009, replacing Mitch Dorger. McKibben was previously executive vice president and chief revenue officer for the Los Angeles Times Media Group.
