You're invited | So, we're making a change … Coaching contracts in the NCAA and the Pros

In the second program of our intercollegiate webinar series, we unpacked legal issues related to the hiring (and firing) of college coaches.

We had special guests from both sides of the table, Scott Gaffield, who represents coaches and serves as General Counsel of Athletes First, and Matt McCoy, Senior Associate General Counsel for Athletics at the University of Arkansas, who shared best practices and the challenges that they face today.

Program topics:

  • Coaching contracts 101: Core terms
  • Key clauses in structuring: How to balance risk
  • Recent innovations, from life insurance to buyouts
  • Best practices and common pitfalls

Please note that CLE credit is only applicable by attending the live webinar.
