About Me

    I continue to publish some of the most commonly used textbooks in the sport management field. My Sport Finance textbook has been adopted in over 80 programs in the United States. The Managing Sport Facilities textbook will have a 3rd edition coming out in 2014 and I have already submitted the draft to the publisher. That text is used at over 120 universities in the United States. I continue to write peer review journal articles designed to address key applied areas. I have been using some of the expert witness consulting cases as the basis for class projects as well as research projects. The students enjoy being able to read about a current case and then I can provide my perspective from actually working on some of those cases.
