Sports Agents Under Scrutiny


Oregon lawmakers consider legislation designed to crack down on slick sports agents. Jeff Hawkins with the University of Oregon's Football Administration says a bill in the legislature would require an agent to notify a school if they meet with an athlete. It would also cement rules stating an athlete can't accept benefits or make an oral or written agreement for future representation. Bill Clever, also with U of O says, it would also allow the Department of Justice to enforce the rules, adding Senate Bill 5 would clearly prevent agents from giving athletes gift benefits and allows the schools to better educate students on the rules related to athletic representation. Senate President Peter Courtney supports the Bill, saying there are too many agents that prey on student athletes, forcing them into unfair agreements and setting the schools up for possible NCAA rule violations.
