Daniels also announced Wednesday that Jeff Behnke, who has served as senior VP and executive producer of Turner Sports, will be leaving his post later this month.

"We appreciate his many contributions, dedication, and loyalty; and have no doubt Jeff will have success in whatever he chooses to take on next."
