SHREVEPORT, La., Feb. 24 (UPI) -- The "Duck Dynasty" family has expanded its duck-call business to include football sponsorships.

Duck Commander, the company owned by Phil Robertson and the Robertson clan featured on A&E's Duck Dynasty, has purchased naming rights to the Shreveport, La.-based Independence Bowl.

Earlier this month, Duck Commander reached a reported $3 million per-year deal to sponsor a NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway.

“We can confirm that Independence Bowl Foundation officials are very excited about a partnership with Duck Commander,” Independence Bowl executive director Missy Setters said in a statement.
