Taylor Martinez’s father ends licensing agreement with UNL
Not that there was anything wrong with it… but Husker quarterback Taylor Martinez’s father and the University of Nebraska announced today they have decided to end their licensing agreement.
Martinez’s father owns a California-based apparel company called Corn Fed, which made a deal with the university in which Nebraska gets a 10 percent on all Corn Fed products it sells. The agreement was made a year before Taylor Martinez committed to UNL.
The university issued a press release today in which Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne said, “Both parties agreed that it would be prudent to no longer have a licensing relationship between the University of Nebraska and Corn Fed. Both the Martinez family and the University of Nebraska feel this decision is best for all parties, and specifically in helping limit distractions for Taylor and the football program.”
The Los Angeles Times broke the story about the agreement in December.
The LA Times broke the non-story, I think, would be more accurate. And I’m certainly no T-Magic nor Husker loyalist.
