Steve Caric Under Investigation In Nevada

Two days ago, I wrote about football agent Steve Caric making a name for himself as a prominent figure in Las Vegas.  Sometimes positive press has negative consequences, as individuals become public figures and regulatory bodies begin to scrutinize their actions.

Caric, who has five NFL Draft eligible clients, including University of Washington’s Mason Foster, who is likely to be a 2nd or 3rd rounder, is now being investigated by Ross Miller, Nevada’s Secretary of State.  Miller is concerned that Caric had not registered as an athlete agent in the State of Nevada and has issued a cease and desist order against the agent, who must stop representing players until the investigation is complete.  How will this affect Caric’s representation of Foster and his other four draft eligible clients?  The NFL Draft is merely three weeks away.

A positive for Caric is that he appears to be cooperating with Miller’s investigation.  Hopefully it will wrap up prior to the start of the NFL Draft.  Caric seems to be saying all the right things in the meantime, such as,

“I support the secretary of state’s effort to regulate athlete representation in Nevada and I am fully cooperating to make sure I am in full compliance with all state requirements.”

One reply on “Steve Caric Under Investigation In Nevada”

I had the occassion to do business with Mr Steve Caric in California, actually i was his landlord. I have to say he was a class act and a high integrity person. Im sure what ever is happening in his career will be ironed out. He was a man of his word 100% and i wish there were more people like him. I was sad when he and his wife left. Not only were model tenants and Steve was a patient with me in getting his deposit back. He was laos very honest in the way he represented himself, was extremely professional and always kept his word.
