We did some Desi Spotting earlier this week that allegedly had a sports connection (the first South Asian model in the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue), but here's a real sport story.
Khan, 55, is the president of Flex-N-Gate Corp., an auto-parts manufacturer based in Urbana, Ill. Khan has lived in the Champaign-Urbana area for more than 40 years and is married with two adult children. Khan is a graduate of the School of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Illinois.
According to league sources, Khan will purchase the 60 percent of the team owned by siblings [Chip] Rosenbloom and [Lucia] Rodriguez, who inherited the franchise from their late mother, Georgia Frontiere, in early 2008. NFL owners must approve the sale.
