CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Cubs president of business operations Crane Kenney says he has agreed to a five-year contract extension through 2019.

He announced the deal during an interview Saturday with Chicago’s WSCR-AM.

Kenney, in his 21st year with the Cubs, has drawn criticism from fans during that time, particularly when it comes to the team’s dealings with the neighboring rooftop owners over the long-awaited renovation of Wrigley Field.

He acknowledged that during the interview, saying, “Thank God it’s not a popularity contest” with ownership. He then said chairman Tom Ricketts gave him an extension through 2019.

The Cubs released a revised plan for the ballpark’s renovation Tuesday that calls for new signs and warns that the franchise would consider moving to another site.
