Report: Leiweke to head up Olympic bid in Los Angeles

Aug 22, 2014, 2:05 PM EDT

A day after it was confirmed that Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment President and CEO Tim Leiweke would leave the organization by June 2015, we may have more clarity on the 57-year-old’s next move.

According to TSN’s Gord Miller, reports have Leiweke is going back to Los Angeles to head up an Olympic bid for 2024, which would also include an NFL stadium.

Leiweke, who joined MLSE in June 2013, moved to Toronto after holding a similar role with AEG, which owns the Los Angeles Kings and Staples Center among others.
