Report: Urbana Businessman Khan to Buy St. Louis Rams
The St. Louis Post Dispatch is reporting that the head of an Urbana company plans to buy the majority share of the St. Louis Rams.
Shahid Khan is the president of auto parts maker Flex-n-Gate and a University of Illinois engineering graduate. The newspaper quotes several NFL sources saying current Rams majority owners Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez, the children of former owner Georgia Frontiere, plan to sell their 60 percent interest to Khan. The remainder of the football franchise is owned by Stan Kroenke. The newspaper's sources say Khan intends to keep the Rams in St. Louis.
