Dominik holds a bachelor of science degree in sports management from the University of Kansas. At Kansas he was a member of the Delta Chi fraternity.
Dominik joined the Buccaneers staff in June 1995 as an assistant in the "pro personnel" department; He rose to Pro Scout in 1998, then Coordinator of Pro Personnel in 2000. As Director of Pro Personnel, Dominik's duties included overseeing the scouting, recruiting and signing efforts of all NFL players, while also monitoring NFL transactions and overseeing player tryouts. He was also in charge of the pro personnel department's evaluation of players in all other professional football leagues, including the Canadian Football League and the Arena Football League, while being responsible for the negotiation and signing of contracts for several free agents and NFL Draft signings.Prior to the start of the 2001 season, Dominik began the first of his eight years as Director of Pro Personnel. In 2002, the franchise won its first world championship, a Super Bowl XXXVII victory over the Oakland Raiders.
The 2010 Draft class was highlighted by Pro-Bowler and All-Pro Gerald McCoy. Prior to the season, Dominik signed Pro Bowl OT Donald Penn to a 6-year extension. The Bucs had the youngest team in the NFL, with 30 players on the 53-man roster in their first, second or third years in the league, yet finished 3rd in the NFC South at 10-6. It was the only season in which a 10-win Buccaneer team did not qualify for the playoffs.
In Dominik's tenure as GM, the Buccaneers went 28-52 with only one winning season and no playoff appearances. On December 30, 2013, Dominik was fired along with head coach Greg Schiano following a 4-12 season.
