Jimmy Haslam will be returning to the family business in his previous position as CEO of Pilot Flying J.

In September, Pilot Flying J hired John Compton to serve as CEO of the company to allow Haslam the time to focus on the Cleveland Browns football team, which he bought last summer.

As Haslam will be returning to Pilot Flying J, Compton will be transitioning into the new role of strategic advisor for the Cleveland Browns, Pilot Flying J and the Haslam family.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported that Haslam missed his work at Pilot Flying J.

"This is about me realizing my first love is running Pilot Flying J and wanting to return to that job," the newspaper quoted Haslam as saying.
