Today, Tannenbaum will embark on a new opportunity in the world of sports business, as a member of full-service agency, Priority Sports & Entertainment. Tannenbaum has been named President of the agency’s brand new Coaches, Front Office & Broadcasters Division, and will oversee all contract negotiation and representation of basketball and football coaches for both professional and college sports from his office in New York.
“I am thrilled to join a fantastic team at Priority Sports & Entertainment. It’s a tremendous company with no shortage of talented people and I only hope to add to the firm’s sterling reputation throughout the industry,” said Tannenbaum.
