It appears that Tiger Woods’ “special announcement” this morning doesn’t even involve him. Instead it appears to be that his agent, Mark Steinberg, who recently left IMG, has decided to join Excel Sports Management, which also manages Derek Jeter. Tiger, as a result, will be moving to Excel.
Turns out when Mark Steinberg told the AP today that: “”There’s an erroneous report that he’s making an announcement, but he’s not,”” he was right. Wasn’t anything directly about Tiger, after all.
Not as exciting an announcement as some expected, but big news in the sports business world, nonetheless.
