This morning the long-suffering wireless carrier announced some “key leadership changes,” sacking three top executives. Leaving are Chief Financial Officer Paul Saleh, Chief Marketing Officer Tim Kelly, and Mark Angelino, president of Sprint’s sales and distribution unit.

Their last day is tomorrow.
