UNIV. OF FLORIDA TRIES FRIENDLY APPROACH WITH SPORTS AGENTS
Published September 13, 1999
The Univ. of FL (UF) "has decided to try a new approach at tackling the sports agents issue" by inviting those in "good standing" with the various pro sports leagues to lunch, according to David Jones of FLORIDA TODAY. On October 18, any agent registered in the state and licensed by the NFLPA, MLBPA or the NBPA "will be allowed to attend" UF's Athlete Agent Education Day. In the morning, UF execs will speak to agents about the "do's and don'ts in attempting to sign" the school's student-athletes. The school's athletes are able to attend the event and meet with the agents. Between 30-40 agents are "expected" to attend the event (FLORIDA TODAY, 9/10).
