Starks was named the president of Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment in March, overseeing the operation of the team. He will continue to also hold that position.
Starks has filled multiple roles with the Miller parent company since being hired in 2007.
Since Rigby became the team's president, the Jazz has been successful but has still never been able to win a championship. They've never been able to win a conference title either, but they have won the divisional title once and have made four appearances in the playoffs.
Rigby said, according to the team's website: "In my career reflections, I have decided that after 30 wonderful years with the Utah Jazz and Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment to announce my retirement at the end of this season.
"I want to thank my family, the Miller family, the Jazz and NBA family, and this great community for the incredible memories, experiences, support and people that have been part of this choice journey. I am excited about the future of the Jazz and my continued involvement as an adviser.
"I look forward to remaining involved in the community and in pursuing new opportunities both personally and professionally. It has been a privilege to be part of this first-class organization.”
