Pakistani-born entrepreneur and auto-parts mogul Shahid Khan will buy the franchise, according to a source with knowledge of the situation…The news of the team’s sale comes on the heels of coach Jack Del Rio’s firing after eight-plus seasons with the team…In other Jaguars news, general manager Gene Smith has received a three-year contract extension, according to a league source.

Makes total sense, right? BTW, Smith had apparently turned down a contract extension over the offseason.
