The NFL has pulled its website development program after a decade of being in the news.
According to a report from The Sport bible, the NFL’s official web development blog, the league will be discontinuing the program in 2019.
The program began in 2006 and, at one point, employed about 20 employees.
In 2009, NFL President John Mara signed a three-year extension that brought the program’s staff up to 60 employees, according to The Sports Bible.
In 2011, the program announced it would be ending its Web development program in 2018.
“The NFL is an iconic franchise that has been a force for good in the communities where it has played its home games,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
“We will be working with our players, coaches, and employees to continue to build a strong, sustainable, and productive community-driven technology and technology-driven business model.
We thank them for their contributions over the past 10 years.”
According to The Sport, the new program will be able to “support a total of 30 teams over the next three years.”
“I know you’ve heard the complaints, but this is not the way to go about it,” NFL head of technology Dan Fouts said in the statement.
