Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (8/5/11)

The NFL is back in business, college football season is quickly approaching (Go Gators!), and the NBA looks like it is going to go through a much more painful process than the NFL just experienced.  I start teaching a brand new class called Sport Agency Management at Indiana University Bloomington near the end of the month.  The beauty is that I do not have to move to Bloomington, Indiana to teach it – the beauty of technology (specifically webcams and sophisticated learning software).  Sports Agent Blog has been becoming more and more popular every month.  If you have any ideas as to how we can make it better, please let us know.  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.
