I am in Detroit today to moderate a question-and-answer session with the President and Chief Operating Officer of NASCAR.  It is my first time in the city.  Back to (sometimes) sunny South Florida tomorrow.  After three fantastic years of teaching Sports Agency Management at Indiana University Bloomington (where I created the course) I am finally calling it quits in favor of focusing my efforts on continuing to expand my existing businesses and find new exciting opportunities.  I am not necessarily out of teaching forever.  Perhaps some updates on that end in the future.  This week on FORBES: (1) Energy Ice Bar Partners With Army Athletics; (2) NCAA Loses Ed O’Bannon Case Along With Theory Of Amateurism; (3) Performance Apparel Brand ATHOS Secures $12.2 Million In Series B Funding; and (4) Daily Fantasy Sports Expands With USA Today Joining The Party.  The sports betting season kicks into high gear in September with the start of the NFL season. If you are looking for an online sportsbook that accepts players from the US then check out for reviews of all the top online sportsbooks.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:

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.
