The Next Great College Football Scandal
If you look at the National Football League’s first round draft picks from the last five years, you will find that an inordinate number of them are represented by the very same agents who represent the head football coach of the university at which the draft pick played college football. Is this ethical? Is it ethical for the head football coach of a university to have an agent representing him, such as Jimmy Sexton of the Creative Artists Agency (“CAA”), who also recruits and represents NFL-bound student athletes coming out of that same university? What if the agent is also a lawyer? Does that matter?
