JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (KMOX) - The NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars announced the hiring Monday of former St. Louis Cardinals president Mark Lamping to be their new team president.
The St. Louis native most-recently was president and CEO of MetLife Stadium—the home of the NFL’s New York Jets and Giants.
Lamping’s new job begins February 27th.
The owner of the Jaguars, central Illinois resident Shahid Khan, released a statement about the hiring, calling it, “a very important and exciting development in the rebirth of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Mark will bring to the Jaguars and Jacksonville community a mix of sports and brand marketing, stadium management expertise and team front-office leadership that is very difficult to find in one person.”
Lamping will be responsible for all non-football facets of the organization, reporting to Khan.
