Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (7/23/2010)

What a week it has been.  With barely any time left before I take the Florida Bar Exam, I have been bogged down covering the pending NCAA investigations at UNC, USC, Alabama, Georgia, and UF.  It is nice to finally see the NCAA looking into a few agent/player benefit accusations.  We all know that it happens, but it is illegal according to federal law, many states’ laws, and is in violation of NCAA rules.  The players associations can levy penalties on convicted agents, as well.  I will probably be out of commission at the beginning of next week, but I am sure my awesome contributors will pick up for my slack and provide at least a few interesting posts.  Have a good weekend, and wish me luck!  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:

By Darren Heitner

Darren Heitner created Sports Agent Blog as a New Year's Resolution on December 31, 2005. Originally titled, "I Want To Be A Sports Agent," the website was founded with the intention of causing Heitner to learn more about the profession that he wanted to join, meet reputable individuals in the space and force himself to stay on top of the latest news and trends.

Heitner now runs Heitner Legal, P.L.L.C., which is a law firm with many practice areas, including sports law and contract law. Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel. He has also served as an Adjunct Professor at Indiana University Bloomington from 2011-2014, where he created and taught a course titled, Sport Agency Management, which included subjects ranging from NCAA regulations to athlete agent certification and the rules governing the profession. Heitner serves as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where he teaches a Sports Law class that includes case law surrounding athlete agents and the NCAA rules.
