"There are other career opportunities and endeavors I am interested in pursuing at this time, and I look forward to watching all of the future success on the horizon for this team," Stanton said in a statement. "He will be missed and we wish him and his family the best in what lies ahead."

Titans president Steve Underwood thanked Stanton for his service to the team and said the Titans will conduct a search to fill the post at the end of the 2016-17 season.

Stanton was with the team for two seasons earlier in his career and returned in June 2015 in the VP role. In between he was director of media relations for the Houston Astros and worked collegiate athletic PR at the University of Kentucky and Univ. of Tennessee.

The resignation is effective immediately.
