The National Football League on Tuesday appointed its number two executive Roger Goodell as its fourth commissioner since World War II, ending its search for a successor to the retiring Paul Tagliabue.
The 47-year-old Goodell was elected unanimously by the league's 32 owners after a series of ballots reduced the five-man shortlist to Goodell and lawyer Gregg Levy.
Goodell will serve a five-year contract after he served as Tagliabue's chief lieutenant, helping to craft league policy, set strategy, negotiate TV and labor contracts, and launch the NFL Network.
