Pro Football Hall of Fame President Stephen A. Perry is retiring.

The 67-year-old Perry spent the last seven years in the job and spearheaded several facility improvements, including the Hall of Fame's recently completed $27 million ''Future 50'' expansion, renovation and modernization.

He will continue to be associated with the hall as an emeritus member of the board of trustees and will continue his community service activities, including serving on the boards of other local non-profit organizations.

Perry was on the hall's board from 1992 to 2001. He is the Hall of Fame's fifth full-time president.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday, ''It has been an honor to work with Steve over the past several years. We thank him and congratulate him on a job well done.''
