I’m enjoying my role as the “Visiting Professor of Sports Industry Management” for the Georgetown University School of Continuing Education’s Sports Industry Management program. This position includes advising students and faculty, teaching, serving as an ambassador for the program and working on strategic planning with the Associate Dean of the program, Matt Winkler.
This position is very gratifying … I mentored / worked with many of the younger employees at AOL over the past 14 years … so it’s a natural fit to consult and work with the graduate students – who are in the same age range. It’s great to see when the “light bulb” comes on.
I’ve written many times about our program — I’m proud to see the growth of the program — we have an outstanding group of sports execs that are part of our faculty — and I continue to be impressed with our students. I look forward to seeing this program grow over the coming years.

BTW, I am still teaching in the GU McDonough School of Business. I’ll start my fifth year of teaching Sports Marketing Strategy next month. It is a good and interesting mix of teaching /advising both graduate and undergraduate students.
