L.A. Memorial Coliseum General Manager Resigns

The general manager of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum resigned on Tuesday, just hours before the stadium’s governing body was set to meet in closed session to consider his fate.

Patrick Lynch, who was been managing the stadium and adjacent Sports Arena since 1994, tendered his resignation in an e-mail to the nine members of the Coliseum Commission. “This last year has been very trying and it has taken its toll on me, both physically and mentally,” Lynch wrote. The commission was scheduled to meet that afternoon to discuss Lynch’s employment.

Commissioner Rick Caruso called for Lynch’s resignation last week after the Los Angeles Times reported that the Coliseum’s assistant general manager for events — Todd DeStefano — was also working for Insomniac Inc. Insomniac organized the Electric Daisy Carnival, an music festival held at the Coliseum last summer during which a 15-year-old girl died from an overdose of Ecstasy.
