Mark Dominik Signs Multi-year Contract ExtensionApril 11th, 2011
Big news for Bucs fans; sad news for the haters.
Team Glazer has rewarded Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik with a four-year contract extension, the Bucs just announced moments ago.
“It’s been a pleasure working with and getting to know Mark, so it’s gratifying to witness his success,” Bucs Co-Chairman Joel Glazer said in a statement released by the club. “Mark is dedicated to delivering the winner our fans deserve.”
“I’m appreciative of the confidence the Glazer family has in the direction of the franchise,” Dominik said in the same release. “I’m looking forward to working into my 20th year as a proud part of this community and organization. The mission is to continue building this team into a lasting contender and to bring championships back to the Tampa Bay area.”
And just how is Dominik celebrating his new contract? He’s playing golf with Joe’s good friend “The Big Dog,” Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620 in the Chris Thomas golf tournament, raising money for the Suncoast Hospice Foundation.
Joe stands up and offers a golf clap. No general manager in the NFL has had a more profound positive impact on his team the past two years than Dominik. He has proved to be an uncanny draft guru who apparently puts in loads of hours into research, going so far as to interview Little League coaches of potential draftees and query agents about other players.
In recent weeks of dark news concerning the labor tug-of-war and Aqib Talib’s legal hassles, this is more than refreshing news.
