Tank Black was a celebrated high school and college athlete and a major college football coach. He became one of the country’s most recognized sports superagents, and was the first agent to represent five first-round NFL draft picks in the annual draft. He signed rising NBA star Vince Carter when he had no NBA clients, and represented more than one hundred top NFL draft choices. He has been featured in Time magazine and the Wall Street Journal, and has been a guest on America's Most Wanted and HBO's Real Sports. He was ultimately cleared of all fraud charges in a civil suit brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
