Bobcats Hire NFL Exec to Boost Ticket Sales

By  | 

The Charlotte Bobcats have hired an NFL executive to try to boost ticket sales.

The Bobcats said Monday that former Buffalo Bills vice president
Pete Guelli will take over the sales and marketing job that had gone unfilled since Greg Economou left before the season.

The team has made numerous changes in the front office since Bob
Johnson paid $300 million for the expansion franchise, which began
play in 2004. The team ranks 27th out of 30 NBA teams in attendance
this season.

Guelli spent 11 years with the Bills. He'll begin his new job
April 20.
