Information for Agents

 


 

Message for sports agents and those acting on their behalf - READ CAREFULLY:

 
As you are aware, the NFLPA is currently no longer unionized. However, it is essential that you are aware that state law still restricts your contact with football "underclassmen".


The State of Mississippi Uniform Athlete Agent Act ("UAAA") and University of Mississippi Athlete Agent Policy require agents (and individuals acting as agents) to register themselves with both the Secretary of State and University prior to contacting any student-athlete. Contact is defined in broad based terms and includes Facebook friending.


Contact of any type with a student-athlete who is not eligible to enter into a professional sports contract is prohibited. Therefore, any contact by agents (or their associates, runners, etc.) with any University of Mississippi football student-athletes who are not at least three (3) NFL seasons removed from high school would be a violation of both the State of Mississippi UAAA and University of Mississippi policy. Any conduct contrary to the parameters of state law and/or university policy may subject you to both criminal and civil penalty.


If you have any questions, please contact the Athletics Compliance Department at 662-915-1594.


Agents Agents seeking to represent Ole Miss student-athletes in their future professional activities and want to participate in our agent education program must agree to the conditions of this policy, apply for registration and receive approval from the Athletics Compliance Department.
