New Jersey memorabilia dealer Bob DeMartino alleges that Reggie Bush’s marketing agent showered the player’s family with gifts while he was still in school.
Yahoo! Sports reported Thursday that after USC’s loss to Texas in the national championship game, Reggie Bush hired Mike Ornstein as his marketing agent. Ornstein has since arranged marketing deals for the Saints’ running back that total some $50 million.
Ornstein hired someone else to represent Bush’s memorabilia deals and he now claims DeMartino is trying to extract revenge by claiming Ornstein violated NCAA rules, possibly landing the USC program in trouble.
DiMartino says that’s not so.
