Eiler oversaw the division that was formerly Collegiate Licensing Co. He started with CLC in '93 and moved to IMG when it acquired the company in '07. IMG College President BEN SUTTON said that "no replacement has been named for Eiler." He added that Eiler’s “plans are to take a few months off and then work as a consultant to Sutton for IMG’s licensing division” (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 1/17 issue).
