Paul Holmgren has taken on yet another new role with the Flyers.

After serving as team president for the past five seasons, Holmgren has stepped down to become a senior advisor to Dave Scott, the chairman of Comcast Spectacor and governor of the Flyers, and Chuck Fletcher.

Fletcher, who was named general manager last December, adds president of hockey operations to his title.

The team made the announcement Thursday, but Holmgren said he first approached Scott a little over a year ago with the idea of making a change.
