The Anaheim Ducks announced today that Executive Vice President and General Manager Bob Murray has resigned from his position, effective immediately. Murray will enroll in an alcohol abuse program. As announced yesterday, Jeff Solomon will be the club's Interim General Manager.

Following is a statement from Ducks Owners Henry and Susan Samueli:

"First and foremost, we apologize on behalf of the organization to anyone affected by misconduct from Bob. We expect every member of our organization to be treated with respect and will not stand for abuse of any kind.

Bob tendered his resignation this morning, while also informing us of his decision to enter an alcohol abuse program. While we do not condone his conduct, we fully support his efforts to improve his physical and mental health by asking for help.

We will now begin a methodical, extensive search for a permanent General Manager to lead us forward. We expect to complete this process no later than next summer."

Following is a statement from Bob Murray:

"I want to apologize to anyone adversely affected by my behavior. I vow to make changes to my life, starting with enrolling in a treatment program. I want to thank Henry and Susan Samueli, and Michael Schulman, as working for them has been one of the highlights of my career. As I step away from the Ducks, I will focus my attention on where it should be: improving my life for the betterment of my family and friends."
