Jacksonville Jaguars Executive Tony Khan makes strategic investment in TruMedia Networks

TruMedia plans expansion of its engineering and product development team

BOSTON – TruMedia Networks today announced that they have finalized a strategic investment from Tony Khan, the Jacksonville Jaguars SVP of Football Technology and Analytics. As a result of this investment, the Boston-based software engineering firm will expand its engineering and product development team.

Since Shahid Khan purchased the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2011, the franchise has undergone a bevy of innovative changes. With a focus on developing a long term strategy for success Shahid Khan put an emphasis on advanced analytics. This led to the hiring of his son, Tony Khan. The younger Khan joined the Jaguars in 2012 to start the team’s Football Technology and Analytics group. He’s chiefly responsible for exploring new technology and its application within all areas of the organization, while also providing insight to the coaching and scouting departments.

“Our initial meeting with Tony and his team was energizing,” said Rafe Anderson, President and CEO of TruMedia Networks. “Tony has a passion for sports data analytics and he has built a very impressive team of analysts. Tony shares our vision and understands the market, so it was clear to us that Tony’s unique perspective and industry expertise would add great value to TruMedia. That said, we didn’t anticipate our relationship with Tony leading to an investment, but we are thrilled with the outcome.”

Since entering the sports analytics marketplace in 2010, TruMedia has launched a suite of robust sports analytics products covering baseball (MLB and MiLB), soccer (domestic and international) and football (NFL and NCAA). As a result, TruMedia’s client base includes a portfolio of professional teams and sports media properties. 

“Team, player and game analysis has a direct impact on a team’s long-term success,” said Tony Khan. “My investment in TruMedia was motivated by my faith in TruMedia’s executive team, the feedback I received from TruMedia’s existing clients and my personal belief that the demand for next generation sports analytics will continue to grow. We have already seen the value in TruMedia’s suite of football products, and I look forward to supporting TruMedia’s aggressive plans for expansion."

ESPN: Josh Johnson is in command in 2011

Rafe Anderson

If it seems like Josh Johnson is flirting with a no-hitter every time out this season, it’s because he is. In each of his five starts this season, the Florida Marlins right-hander has not allowed a hit though three innings. In three of his five starts, including Sunday against the Rockies, he pitched at least 5⅔ innings of no-hit ball. Johnson has three of the six total no-hit bids of at least 5⅔ innings this season. According to Elias, he is the first pitcher in the last 50 years with three starts of at least 5⅔ no-hit innings in April.

Published April 28, 2011

NESN has struck a short-term trial deal with TruMedia Networks to test the Massachusetts-based company's player-by-player heat maps, based on advanced statistical analytics, during game broadcasts. The RSN is exploring how best to deploy the technology, and is also searching for a presenting corporate sponsor for the element. The heat maps show hot and cold zones and historical tendencies for individual hitters and pitchers, and can be easily tailored to a nearly infinite amount of specific game and pitch-count situations. "We're always looking for ways to enhance the viewing experience for Red Sox fans," said Russ Kenn, NESN coordinating producer for Red Sox broadcasts. “TruMedia Networks' heat mapping technology not only enhances the viewing experiences but also provides brands an opportunity for unique in-game exposure."

Gonzalez's Monster Potential (ESPN)

Rafe Anderson

Some interesting analysis from ESPN regarding Adrian Gonzalez and this future at Fenway Park.

Gonzalez’s opposite field power was an inescapable storyline when the Boston Red Soxacquired him in the offseason (and now it’ll be one for the next seven years). Here was a player who had smacked 50 opposite field home runs since 2008, the most in the majors. In fact, only Ryan Howard (48) even came close, with Joey Votto’s 36 next in line. 

Here is the complete story.
