Why FanWord Coach

The new NIL era is going to instrumentally change the way we know college sports. New name, image, and likeness legislation will not only impact student-athletes and their ability to monetize their personal brands but heavily influence core collegiate athletics areas such as recruiting, fundraising, sponsorships, student-athlete development, and more. Navigating this space is going to be a challenge. Navigating this space alone is going to be even more challenging. Schedule a call today to get a better feel for how we can help.
