After an extensive external search, the Vikings have named former Toronto Blue Jays executive Andrew Miller as new chief operating officer, Dane Mizutani of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports. He takes over for Kevin Warren, who was named the Big Ten Commissioner a couple of months ago, and his first day on the job will be Sept. 1.

“I am honored to join an organization with such a deep tradition as the Minnesota Vikings and work with the Wilf family, who have demonstrated such a strong commitment to the community,” Miller said in a release. “I am excited to be a part of the Vikings organization and positively impact our fans, who are among the most passionate in all sports.”

Miller led the business operations of the Blue Jays for the past four seasons with a focus on understanding and enhancing the fan experience. He also led the capital improvements for Rogers Centre and oversaw the organization’s spring training facility renovations.

“We are thrilled to name Andrew COO of the Minnesota Vikings,” owner Mark Wilf said in a release. “Andrew is a first class individual, known for his integrity, strong business acumen, and collaborative approach. He cares deeply about people and their development and is acutely focused on every way in which he can improve the organization. Kevin Warren has been an integral part of the Vikings for the past 15 years and helped create a culture we are all proud of. We think Andrew is a tremendous addition to our organization, and will help us continue to build on that foundation, while always putting the utmost importance on our fans and our community.”
