Four years after leaving the Red Sox for the beautiful beaches of Miami, Mike Dee is on the move again.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the former Sox Chief Operating Officer will be leaving his post as the Dolphins CEO in order to fill that position in the San Diego Padres organization. It will be a return of sorts for the businessman, as Dee not only worked for the team in the past, he grew up in the area as well.

Dee had originally been hired by the Dolphins to head the financials of the organization -- the team and stadium development. Unfortunately, Dee oversaw a battle to secure public funding for Sun Life Stadium upgrades that has proven futile. But his work still retains high marks.

After all, it was Dee who presided over such implementations as the Green Monster seats and staging concerts in Fenway Park. Attendance and revenue growth consistently set records under his tenure.

So, Dee's departure is a none too insignificant loss for the Fins.

There is no news yet on who will replace Dee in his recently vacated position.
