Early Career Memory: “I was a sophomore in college (1984). My suitemate was Reggie White. I worked as a manager for the Tennessee football team. The USFL paid my way to go to the Hula Bowl, to keep an eye on Reggie White because they were interested in signing him. At the end of that week, he signed with the Memphis Showboats of the USFL and said I was his agent. I was 20-years-old. It was (a contract for) over a million dollars…a five-year contract for $5.5 million. At the time, the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL was $400,000. So it was huge. It was what they offered.”
Favorite Meal: “Cheeseburger, fries [smiles].”
Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: “Chocolate.”
Funny Career Memory: “The funniest…I really can’t talk about some of the crazy stories players deal with in their every day lives. (Pause) I had a player one time who was getting married, who was worth a decent amount of money. We discussed a pre-nuptial agreement. He told me we had no need for this, he and his future wife were in love. Then, after a week after his honeymoon, he got into a huge fight with her. Three o’clock in the morning my phone rang. He told me as soon as I get in the office in the morning, to draw up that pre-nuptial agreement. By then it was too late [smiles].”
Childhood Dream: “I probably wanted to be a trial lawyer (prosecutor), as a kid.”
Greatest Career Moment: “Probably when the players you’re close to, that you represent for a long time…finally win a championship. Like when Scottie Pippen won a championship with Chicago (’91). Reggie White and Green Bay down in New Orleans (’97). Another big moment was when Reggie White went to Green Bay (’93).”
Most Painful Moment: “Probably last year. It might sound crazy…Jason Witten, a kid we got out of Tennessee, he came out early as a junior. He was supposed to be a first or second rounder last year. He went in the third round. And it magnifies. You don’t want a player who comes out early to fall.”
