NFLPA Contract Advisor Ken Sarnoff Joins PlayersRep Sports Management

On May 1, 2012, I reported that NFLPA Contract Advisor Ken Sarnoff left Lagardère Unlimited.  A little over a month has passed, and Sarnoff has already found a new home, literally.  Sarnoff has moved from Phoenix, Arizona to Chicago, Illinois and paired up with the PlayersRep Sports Management team.

PlayersRep Co-Founder Andy Simms first reported the news yesterday on his Twitter account.

As of right now, Sam Renaut, who left Lagardère Unlimited when Sarnoff departed, is not joining PlayersRep.  Renaut is currently studying for the NFLPA Contract Advisor certification test, which will be given on July 19 and 20 in Washington D.C. (as just announced yesterday).  Renaut’s hope is that he will pass the exam and join back up with Sarnoff at PlayersRep.  My best wishes are with Sam.
