NC State’s Professional Sports Counseling Panel assists our student-athletes and their parents in making informed decisions when pursuing future career opportunities, either as a professional athlete or another career path after college athletics. The panel provides practical information, learning opportunities, and services to all student-athletes and their families free of charge. The panel is in place to protect our student-athletes and their best interests. The five panel members have expertise in professional sports, law, business, life coaching and financial management.  These panel members are supported by Chancellor Woodson, Athletic Director Yow, and NC State’s Athletic Department.
