Larry Bird To Step Down As Pacers President

Larry Bird is expected to step down as president of the Indiana Pacers, the Indianapolis Star reported Tuesday.Team owner Herb Simon is scheduled to meet with Bird on Tuesday to plan Bird’s exit from the team, the Star reported. Last month, Bird told The Associated Press, he’d stay put as the Pacers team president for a few more years — if that’s what team owner Herb Simon wants.“I’d do it today if Herbie was here,” Bird said last month, drawing laughter. “We’ve got kids working out, we’ve got six free agents, we’ve got a lot going on right now. Obviously, I want to sit down with Herb as quickly as possible. I don’t like this (questions) at all. I’d like a three-year deal, but we have a handshake agreement. It’s hard coming in here and not having the answers.”
