Hyers, a well regarded Democratic campaign operative, previously was the campaign manager for now New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio's bid to succeed New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Shortly after the mayoral campaign ended Crist quickly approached Hyers about running his gubernatorial campaign, according to a profile of Hyers in The Washington Post.

The Tampa Bay Times report did not say why Hyers quit.
