Neinas, Dodds to advise new college sports firm
Interim Big 12 Commissioner Chuck Neinas and Texas Athletic Director DeLoss Dodds will be among the current college administrators serving as advisers in a new venture by a sports consulting firm designed to provide one-stop shopping for athletic programs looking for guidance.
JMI Sports LLC has started the JMI Sports College Division, which will provide universities assistance with everything from finding a new coach to finding a new conference, from dealing with NCAA issues to building a new stadium.
JMI Sports is a San Diego-based firm that assists professional and college teams expand or build sports venues. It was co-founded by John Moores, owner and chairman of the San Diego Padres, and Erik Judson.
Jeff Schemmel, the former athletic director at San Diego State, was hired to be managing director of JMI's college division.
