Chiefs sign team president Donovan to contract extension

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs and team president Mark Donovan have agreed to a contract extension.

Terms of the deal, announced Tuesday, were not disclosed.

Donovan spent six years with the Eagles before joining the Chiefs as their chief operating officer in 2009. He was promoted to president two years later.

Donovan has been instrumental in updating the fan experience at Arrowhead Stadium, creating new membership programs, implementing new technology and building the season-ticket base. He has also helped to bring several events to the Chiefs' stadium, including numerous college football games and concerts involving the Rolling Stones and Kenny Chesney.

Before joining the Eagles, Donovan spent several years working as the NFL's senior director of sales and marketing. He also worked for the NHL and in the private sector.
