To no one's surprise, Ross Levinsohn is leaving Yahoo (YHOO) after being passed over for the CEO job in favor of Marissa Mayer. Levinsohn struck many content deals during his time as interim CEO, and also settled disputes with Alibaba and Facebook. A case can be made Yahoo needs both Levinsohn's deal-making ability and media industry ties, and Mayer's product development skills and recruiting ability. Unfortunately, it's only getting one. Update: Yahoo's North American sales chief has also quit. (earlier)

    Did YHOO get a good deal? Time will tell, but how much time do they have?
