Nashville SC have extended the contract of general manager Mike Jacobs, keeping him at the club through the 2026 Major League Soccer season.

Jacobs first joined Nashville in 2018, when the team participated in the USL Championship before transitioning into an MLS Expansion team one year later. Under his leadership, Nashville has made the MLS Cup Playoffs every season since debuting.

“Mike's commitment, dedication and personality make that a very easy fit with all of us," Nashville CEO Ian Ayre said in a release.

"Mike is thoroughly deserving of this extension to his contract, which will keep him with us for at least another three years. I am very pleased for him and his family, he is a well-liked member of our team and also a friend and I look forward to us continuing this incredible journey together.”

Jacobs has also overseen several significant moments in the team’s history, including Walker Zimmerman’s Designated Player deal and the opening of GEODIS Park.

"I can’t thank John Ingram and our ownership group enough for this opportunity to continue to build and grow what we’ve created thus far," Jacobs said.

"I feel so grateful to get the chance to continue on in this journey to pursue championships along with our players and staff, and I am so humbled to continue to represent our club and its supporters. I am so excited for our club’s present and future.”

The team currently sits in fifth place in the Western Conference as it continues to strive for another place in the MLS Cup Playoffs.
