Khan's front office more fully formed
By Paul Kuharsky
Jaguars owner Shad Khan can call on Wayne Weaver anytime.
Jaguars president Mark Lamping can now do the same with Macky Weaver.
Macky Weaver resigned from the Jaguars' front office and will serve as a senior advisor for Jacksonville after being part of the team’s front office for all 19 years of the franchise’s existence.
Most recently, he was senior vice president of sales. He started as an account executive in corporate sponsorship and moved up to director of corporate sponsorship in December 1997 and to executive director in 2004. The final title change and responsibility shift came in April 2010.
Macky is a nephew of Wayne, and it makes sense that as Khan gets his front office fully in place that a Weaver is no longer a big part of it.
- Hussain Naqi was promoted to senior vice president of fan engagement.
- Chad Johnson was promoted to senior vice president of ticket sales.
- Megha Parekh will join the organization March 1 as vice president and general counsel. She replaces Sashi Brown, who was hired by the Cleveland Browns last month.
Khan has now been in control of the organization since late in the 2011 season.
He’s now put Lamping in place as president, shed the GM he inherited and now has the last tie to the old ownership minimized.
He hired his own general manager, David Caldwell, who hired his own coach, Gus Bradley.
It’s Khan’s deal now. We need time to evaluate him as an owner. But his people and the plan they’ve all come up with is in place.
