Originally written April 03, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Former New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum has decided to change careers and become a sports agent. Tannenbaum has been hired by Priority Sports to represent coaches and sports broadcasters, according to Forbes. Tannenbaum has been named President of the agency’s brand new Coaches, Front Office & Broadcasters Division, and will oversee all contract negotiation and representation of basketball and football coaches for both professional and college sports from his office in New York. “I am thrilled to join a fantastic team at Priority Sports & Entertainment. It’s a tremendous company with no shortage of talented people and I only hope to add to the firm’s sterling reputation throughout the industry,” said Tannenbaum. The hiring of Tannenbaum gives Priority Sports & Entertainment, led by CEO Mark Bartelstein, offices in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Atlanta.  It also lends the company a lot of credibility as it expands into the area of representing coaches, front office personnel and broadcasters.  Priority Sports is currently known for its strong football and basketball divisions, which represent Arian Foster, David Lee, Chandler Parsons and Bradley Beal, among others. “For us to be able to add an executive of the caliber of Mike Tannenbaum is an absolute home run for our company and our clients,” said Bartelstein.  ”We couldn’t be happier to have Mike on board. We are extremely excited about establishing the new division, which is a perfect fit for Priority Sports & Entertainment.” Tannenbaum goes from poorly managing the Jets’ salary cap to managing the career’s of coaches and broadcasters.  I hope things work out for him with his new career.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
