An NFL head coach might be one of the last people we would expect to be represented by Jay Z’s upstart agency Roc Nation. But that’s the situation that Hue Jackson of the Cleveland Browns finds himself in.
Jackson’s agent, John Thornton, recently left Octagon to join Roc Nation Sports. That in and of itself is not the story here. Instead, the second-year Browns head coach decided to follow his agent to the exclusive Jay Z club (via the Akron Beacon Journal).
Yes, this means we could very well be seeing Jay-Z and Beyoncé together at a Browns game here in the near future. No word yet on whether Rihanna and Kevin Durant will be joining them.
For his part, Hue Jackson joins the likes of Durant, Dez Bryant and Yoenis Cespedes as big-name invididuals in the sports industry to be represented by the relatively young company.
