Current ESPN NFL analyst and former NFL player and front office executive, Louis Riddick, has signed with WME for his representation in broadcasting and endorsement work. His representation will be led by Jim Ornstein and Ira Stahlberger, but agents across WME and IMG will also assist.
He was formerly represented by NFL agent, Paul Sheehy, who is also the president and general counsel of ProStar Sports Agency. When asked about Riddick, Sheey said “While I am happy to have helped Louis launch his media career and gain a strong foothold in the industry, our primary relationship over 20 years has been working on all things NFL, and I will continue to represent him in that capacity should those opportunities arise.”
After being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the 9th round of the 1991 NFL Draft out of the University of Pittsburgh, Riddick played safety for four teams (49ers, Falcons twice, Browns and Raiders) from 1991-1998. After his playing career ended, he became a scout and Director of Pro Personnel for the Washington Redskins and then the Philadelphia Eagles. He has been with ESPN since 2013.
