JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have given team president Mark Lamping a five-year contract extension.

Owner Shad Khan announced the extension Wednesday.

Lamping oversees all of the team's business operations. He joined the franchise in 2013 after working for baseball's St. Louis Cardinals and then on the Jets-Giants stadium project in New Jersey.

In Jacksonville, Lamping has helped improve fans' game-day experience at EverBank Field while increasing ticket sales and strengthening business relationships throughout the city.

Khan says Lamping "has impressively served the Jaguars and, by extension, the National Football League. . Our business performance over the past three years has been nothing short of spectacular. From growing our brand regionally and internationally to seeing through our emphasis on improving the game-day experience at EverBank Field and much more, Mark has done it all."
