The Jacksonville Jaguars today promoted Dan Edwards to vice president of communications and media. With his new responsibilities, Edwards will continue to oversee the communications and broadcasting departments, with the additional responsibilities of community relations and internet content.
"This restructure will better focus the entire Jaguars organization with a consistent message and one voice communicating to the public," said Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver. Edwards will report directly to Weaver in his new role.
Edwards, 44, has been with the Jaguars since May 1994, being hired more than a year before the team's first game. He served as executive director of communications for five years and then executive director of communications and broadcasting the last three years. Now in his 20th season in the NFL, Edwards previously was the public relations director for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1985 to 1993. He has also worked for the Miami Dolphins and the league office.
