Phil Mickelson to Coach at His Alma Mater

EPHeader

Jessica Marksbury hosts Alan Bastable, Jeff Ritter and Cameron Morfit as they discuss how lucrative Phil Mickelson and Arizona State University’s coaching deal is for the school, plus whether other pros may follow suit.

Mickelson is in the process of becoming an interim assistant coach for the Sun Devils, where he won three individual titles as a player. The arrangement would allow Mickelson to spend time talking to and playing with team members while also calling potential recruits. As an alumnus of the school and a program donor, Mickelson would be otherwise prohibited from those tasks because of NCAA rules.
