The Buccaneers announced Monday that they have signed general manager Mark Dominik to a four-year contract extension.
Dominik, who was promoted to the position in January 2009, helped orchestrate the greatest turnaround in franchise history when the Bucs improved their won-lost record from 3-13 in '09 to 10-6 last season.
"It's been a pleasure working with and getting to know Mark, so it's gratifying to witness his success," co-chairman Joel Glazer said in a statement. "Mark is dedicated to delivering the winner our fans deserve."
Dominik began his career in Tampa Bay as a pro scout in 1995 and was a member of the team's personnel department that helped build the Bucs' Super Bowl championship team in 2002. He was the director of pro personnel before landing the GM role.
"I am appreciative of the confidence the Glazer family has in the direction of the franchise," Dominik told the team's official website. "I am 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."
Dominik has handled the NFL draft the past two seasons. He selected franchise QB Josh Freeman in the first round of the '09 draft and grabbed WR Mike Williams with a fourth-round pick last season. Dominik also signed undrafted free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount.
