Sonny Vaccaro

This Wednesday from 5:05-6:00 p.m. special guest Sonny Vaccaro, a former sports marketing executive, who signed Michael Jordan to his first sneaker deal with Nike, will make a live appearance on Upon Further Review to discuss whether college athletes have the right to a salary.  As part of the contracts college basketball players sign when admitted in the NCAA, the NCAA is able to make money off of licensing player’s names and likenesses. Vaccaro’s take on the NCAA’s profiteering was recently featured in an article by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
