McConnell effective Tuesday (April 17), according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Form 8-K. Jones is to continue to serve as chairman and McConnell will continue as a board member. Jeff Tanner has been appointed COO and will serve as interim CEO until a successor is appointed. Tanner, 55, has been executive vice president of geosciences and business development; he previously was vice president of exploration for Southwestern Energy Co.
