David Falk Talks About Representing Coach K

Last Thursday, CNBC’s Darren Rovell spoke with sports agent, David Falk.

David Falk calls Coach K the Michael Jordan of coaching.  Not many people would be able to defend such a claim, but I guess Falk can, as he repped Jordan in his playing days.  Falk has looked to create long-term relationships for Coach K with 5 main companies.  He is not interested in one-offs, but instead, has focused on a few companies that match Coach K’s ideals.

I thought that it was interesting that Falk stated that he does not think that Ed O’Bannon will win his lawsuit.  Need a refresher on what his case is all about?  Click here.

One reply on “David Falk Talks About Representing Coach K”

I understand how much coach K loves Duke and how he enjoys being a larger then life figure down in the Triangle but there’s no way he could reject the NJ Nets offering him close to 15 million a year. Especially with the respect he receives from the NBA players, this is not Rick Pitino coaching the Celtics. Coach K was given the up most respect from the NBA’s largest group of prima donna’s in the NBA, during the Olympics. Should be interesting when he receives this offer.
