Dave Kasper is one of the longest-tenured executives around MLS and according to a new report, the D.C. United GM is staying put.

Steven Goff of The Washington Post reported on Friday that Kasper is being re-signed on a multi-year contract extension and with a new title.

Kasper joined D.C. United in 2002 as technical director and in 2007 became the club's general manager. A former pro player, US youth international and college coach, he has helped D.C. to five trophies in his tenure there: the 2004 MLS Cup, two Supporters' Shields (2006, 2007) and two U.S. Open Cup titles (2008, 2013).

D.C. United will officially kick off the 2020 MLS regular season on Feb. 29 when they take on the Colorado Rapids at Audi Field.
