Ivan Nova is not the only professional athlete who was almost on to the next one. However, Nova’s case, he actually left his agent and signed with another representative prior to returning to his original agent.
A couple of weeks ago, Philadelphia Eagles runningback LeSean McCoy fired Drew Rosenhaus, seriously considered signing with Mike Vick’s agent Joel Segal, but returned to Rosenhaus within a day of sending in his paperwork to terminate the relationship.
Yesterday, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN and Baseball America tweeted that Ivan Nova recently terminated SFX and is now represented by Greg Genske at Legacy Sports Group. Someone at SFX was probably immediately informed about that tweet, because soon thereafter, Crasnick clarified his statement with a follow up tweet stating that Nova actually terminated SFX, signed with Genske for a couple of days, but then decided to make his way back to SFX for representation. Thus, Nova is still an SFX client. I wonder what led Nova to leave SFX and then influenced him to return two days later.
