Roger Goodell has agreed a new three-year contract extension to remain as commissioner of the NFL.
Goodell, 64, has been in the role since 2006 when he succeeded Paul Tagliabue, enjoying contract renewals in 2009, 2012 and 2017.
“The Compensation Committee updated the full ownership today that an agreement has been reached to extend Commissioner Roger Goodell’s contract for three years, through March 2027,” the league announced in a statement.
Goodell started working for the NFL in 1982 as an intern and will have worked for the organisation for 45 years when his new contract expires in three years’ time.
He is credited with increasing the league’s popularity and revenue streams.
