Jaguars Hire Mark Lamping As Team President To Oversee Non-Football Operations

Running a football organization is about a lot more than just the product that goes out on the field. New owner Shahid Khan has hired Mark Lamping to oversee all non-football aspects of the organization, according to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union.

Lamping will oversee all non-football operations starting February 27. He and Jaguars general manager Gene Smith will both report directly to Khan. This hiring did not change Jaguars CFO/Senior Vice President of Stadium Operations Bill Prescott's position, nor any others at this time. Lamping was the president of Major League Baseball's St. Louis Cardinals for 13 years. Since 2008, Lamping has been president and CEO of MetLife Stadium, where the New York Giants and Jets play.

Having a team president is not an essential part of the organization, in fact the Jaguars didn't even have one for the past ten years, but the Jaguars and Khan must have felt it was necessary for an organization that is such an important state of transition.
