“College football is almost too big to fail.”

It says so much about the business that the only people Dennis Dodd could get to speak on the record about coaches’ agents owning athletic directors were two retired ADs and a sports lawyer who said,

“You have so few agents representing the vast majority of Power Five coaches, it makes it easier to control the market,” said Darren Heitner, a South-Florida based attorney specializing in sports law. “[They’re not going to] allow individuals to go against the grain and agree to a lower-term deal.”

I can’t wait to see what happens the first time an AD tries the “it’s [now] a different market” argument with Jimmy Sexton.

  2. I have never understood the value of having an agent especially as a coach. Most of these coaches contracts are public record. Why not look through 2 or 3 that you feel are applicable and similar to what you believe is fair for you and the school. Then basically replicate them into your own deal. Cut out the middle man and make a little more yourself.
