Eight Longhorns Student-Athletes Sign NIL Agreement with Texas-Ex-Run Company CoachTube

By on August 25, 2021 0

Eight Texas student-athletes in three sports have signed NIL agreements with CoachTube, a platform for potential athletes to learn from some of coaching’s most notable names, LonghornsCountry.com has learned.

These Longhorns athletes, including footballers Keondre Coburn, Xavier Worthy, Ja’Tavion Sanders, Ayodele Adeoye and Junior Angilau, will be part of a new program on the platform, in which they will teach their own courses.

“Bigger, more talented guys always showed me new things to improve my game when I was younger,” Texas defensive tackle Keondre Coburn said of the opportunity. “Now I’m able to do the same for others in this position thanks to CoachTube. It’s a perfect way to build my brand using what I know.”

Male basketball players Tre Mitchell and Andrew Jones, as well as athletics star Obrien Wasome, have also signed with CoachTube.

CoachTube Founder and CEO Wade Floyd is a graduate of the University of Texas and has previously signed stars from other major college sports programs such as Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia, and Miami, and is now adding Texas to that list.

“The goal is to be the primary source of income for student athletes,” said Floyd. “We built CoachTube to empower coaches and athletes to be successful, not to operate their brand for profit. I can’t think of a better way for athletes to make money from their name, image and likeness than to teach those who admire them what they love.

Like other instructors in the program, employee student-athletes will have full creative control over how their content and clients are managed and how their name, image and likeness is used.

Athletes will also set prices for individual and group lessons, as well as lesson packages, which may include training manuals, quizzes and one-on-one sessions in addition to videos.

“After the NCAA changed the rules for student-athletes, I knew I wanted to pass my knowledge on to the kids who look up to me,” said Ja’Tavion Sanders, freshman from Longhorns. “Thanks to CoachTube, I can now show them how I improve my job on a daily basis. “

CoachTube will act as a support team for these athletes, while bearing the initial cost of producing high quality video lessons, and allow athletes to retain ownership of the educational content in exchange for collecting fees for everything. what is sold on its platform.

With over 1,300 renowned coaches and athletes who have produced nearly 5,000 video lessons covering more than 50 sports, from soccer to basketball to e-sports, CoachTube was founded in 2015 and is based in Austin, TX. .
