Changes to name, image and likeness rules in July 2021 have created numerous opportunities for student athletes, but it’s also created a bevy of new opportunities for professionals in college sports. Increasingly, athletic departments are hiring NIL Directors and other staff members to support student athletes in their NIL endeavors.

We are attempting to keep track below of professionals who are now in NIL-centric positions in athletic departments around the country. If we’re missing someone you think we should add to the list, please contact us here.
