Taft partner Fred Glass is quoted in the article “IU athletes gain avenue to use NIL to support not-for-profit groups,” which was published by the Indianapolis Business Journal on March 8. The article discusses how IU student athletes are using the newly adopted NCAA rules for good. Hoosiers For Good Inc. will partner with organizations across the state in order to connect these athletes with programs to raise awareness, funds, and volunteerism efforts.
Glass will serve as the organization’s legal counsel, where he says, “This is really cutting edge stuff—I’ve always liked that kind of thing. And my hope is that it’s a model that pops up at other schools who can use this new tool … to do good. I hope we’re showing the way that could happen.” Read the article here (subscription required).
Glass is a partner at Taft and focuses his practice on business law as well as issues involving sports/media/entertainment, higher education, employment, and government matters. Prior to joining Taft, he served as an Indiana University vice president and the director of intercollegiate athletics for nearly 12 years.
