A league source tells us that former Pitt tailback LeSean McCoy has signed up with agent Drew Rosenhaus.
McCoy had two years of eligibility remaining at Pitt.
As chronicled last week at CFT was in the middle of a tug-o-war between his coach and his mother about whether to turn pro.  His mother was pushing McCoy to leave for the NFL, McCoy supposedly wanted to stay, and Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt was believed in some circles to have been the source of the disclosure of the mother’s role in the situation to KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh.
UPDATE:  Rosenhaus confirmed the signing during a Thursday morning radio appearance with our pal Joe Rose of WQAM in Miami.


  1. Mike, love your site, it’s a several-click-a-day habit. But I’d love it if this agent-related “news” could be spun off to a separate blog that I could then ignore. Really. Don’t. Care.

  2. This means he’ll have a holdout until at least week 3 of the regular season then a holdout next year at training camp because he outplayed his rookie deal

  3. Great parenting…….forget an education! Unbelievable and we wonder why our society is in the shape it is in. I like sports as much as the next guy, but an education is needed for life after football. I know what will be said “he can go back during is off time”. I would love to see how much that actually happens.

  4. Show Shady da money!!! Hopefully doesn’t end up on garbage team (Bungles, Skidmarks, or the Crows)
    GO STEELERS!!! The rest of the AFC north sucks!!!

    O(t)her than Don King, Drew Rosenhaus is the biggest scum bag is sports!
    I disagree, that title belongs to Scott Boras the only thing he cares about is His wallet. And Yes Rosenhaus is a scum bag he is not quite in the Boras(s) class, yet.

  6. Watch for the “Slaton Rule” on this guy. McCoy was TERRIBLE in his Bowl game just like Slaton was at the end of the previous year. Then all of a sudden, slaton goes to the Texans and plays like it was his freshman year again. McCoy was clearly mailing it in during the Sun Bowl (probably under the advice of Drew Rathous). He still has a bright future in the NFL

  7. I had to double take at this headline. I thought Colt McCoy made the jump without me knowing.
