"Dennis was a terrific GM," Cox wrote. "I'm sorry to see him go and wish him the best."

Cox said he does not know exactly when Petrullo's last day of work was, but AEG already has a person in place to fill the vacant General Manager position.

The person is based out of London, England and is a 30-year veteran of the company, according to Cox. This person has not yet been publicly identified by AEG, but will be in Louisville during the transitional period of 30 days.
