Marcus Jordan Sneaker Controversy

Marcus Jordan’s family loyalty could technically cost his college, University of Central Florida, three million dollars. Michael Jordan’s son became the center of the school’s contract renewal dilemma as he would only wear his father’s http://nike.com/jumpman23″>Air Jordans, stating that it holds “special meaning to his family”. In his own words, “It’s a level of importance with the Jordan Brand and my family,” he said. “It’s no disrespect to Adidas. I have a high level of respect for Adidas, but I’m going to be wearing Jordan shoes. I’m wearing the Adidas uniform and all my other UCF gear is Adidas, but the shoes are going to be Jordan Brand.” This is an issue because University of Central Florida’s sports teams are sponsored by http://adidas.com”>adidas and the five-year contract due to end next June requires all coaches and athletes to wear adidas gear. The school is currently negotiating a contract renewal that could be worth up to three million dollars and lasts up to six years. Currently, both parties are trying to work out a solution to this problem in contract renewal discussions. http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=4585723″>via: ESPN
