He wasn't allowed to bring the Carolina Panthers with him, but Tim Morgan is arriving in Chattanooga with nearly a decade of sports management skills from the Queen City.

Morgan has been hired as the new president of the Greater Chattanooga Sports & Events Committee after spending the past eight years as the sports sales manager of Visit Charlotte, the sales and marketing division of the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority. His stint with the CRVA followed four-plus years in public relations with the NFL's Panthers.

"I'm looking forward to seeing the ins and outs of Chattanooga and really entrenching myself in this community the way I was in Charlotte," Morgan said.
