Become a Sports Agents Today!

Yes. It will help you get a job in basketball. The key word here is help. For the entire eight-week course you will be on live video chats speaking with Dean Oliver and Dr. Lashbrook, plus other participants who are interested in furthering their career in basketball. Students have included Nick Nurse, 2019 Basketball Championship Head Coach, Mark Warkentien, Oklahoma City Thunder Executive, and several basketball coaches and pro players.

Networking with these types of people daily should help you. More importantly you will be learning techniques and strategies that Basketball teams are learning themselves and are looking for in employees. The course content includes cutting edge theories and the business of basketball analytics. The course will give you information that will make you an asset to any professional basketball organization. Will it directly get you the job? Not necessarily, but the knowledge you learn from the course and the contacts that you make might be the clincher to beating out your competition for the job!


 Do I really get to talk to Dean Oliver weekly?

Throughout the eight-week course, Dean Oliver has a one-hour live video chat each week on scouting. Dr. Lashbrook also leads a one-hour live audio chat each week with students from all courses on job strategies. If you miss a chat they are archived and you can listen when it is convenient for you.


 How else can I break into the basketball world?

David Morway, former GM of the Indiana Pacers worked for a while as a Sports Agent.
