Hanthorn will report to Jets Team President Bill McCoshen and work closely with Jets Marketing and Corporate Sales Manager John McCally as well as Jets Head Coach Joe Dibble.
“The Jets are thrilled to have Big Red Hanthorn join our team! My partners and I wanted to enhance our fan
experience at our home games as we strive to increase our attendance to 900 fans per game,” stated Jets
President Bill McCoshen. “We also wanted to ensure that our players and coaches are much more involved in community activities. We are confident Big Red’s passion for the Janesville area and the Jets will help us achieve those goals.”
