Lawsuits – a nightmare for the sports manager! Just in 2009, stories about the reckless homicide charge against the Kentucky high school football coach and the wrongful death lawsuit against the University of Central Florida for the death of Eric Plancher, another football player, has filled much air time in the local and national media. This does not have to happen! Fortunately, death in sports is not commonplace, but accidents are. Sport is one of the most litigated areas in the United States.
