"We are incredibly excited to add Mark to our staff," said Executive Vice President/General Manager Jed Hoyer. "He had a long and successful playing career and earned the respect of every team he joined along the way. I was with Mark for one season in Boston and it was clear to me that he could have a great impact on an organization in a front-office role once he finished his playing career. I feel fortunate that the timing of my arrival in San Diego and Mark's retirement coincided and I was eager to bring Mark on-board to help in all aspects of the department."
