Acclaimed sports agent to talk to students

Former sports agent Leigh Steinberg will talk about his decades-long career from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today in room 205 of Garrison Gym. The event is free, but space is limited to 160 people.

Steinberg has represented more than 150 professional athletes, including eight No. 1 draft picks in the NFL. The stories are chronicled in his book, “The Agent: My 40-Year Career Making Deals and Changing the Game.”

Copies of Steinberg’s book will be available for purchase at the event. Following his talk and a Q&A session, Steinberg will sign his book.

“We are very excited about the opportunity for our students to hear Mr. Steinberg speak,” said Charles Layne, professor and chair of the Department of Health and Human Performance. “As a sports agent who has been extraordinarily successful, he will be able to provide students with an insider’s perspective and practical advice for launching their own successful careers.”
