Bob LaMonte is the President of PSR, having founded the company in 1979. Bob is one of the only sports representatives to have been a player, teacher, coach, agent, and author. Bob has mastered the art of negotiation, and is a true confidante. He has negotiated over $2.2 Billion in professional sports contracts during his career, and fully serves the needs of our clients.
Bob gained experience with athletic pressure as a football player at the University of Santa Clara, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in History. Upon graduation, he taught at San Jose State University and earned a Master’s Degree in United States Diplomatic History/Labor History. After earning his Master’s Degree, he taught U.S. History and coached varsity football at Oak Grove High School in San Jose, CA.
Bob’s foray into the business of football occurred when he represented Rich Campbell, a former student, as a first-round pick in the 1981 NFL Draft. Thereafter, Mike Holmgren sought Bob’s advice regarding career options. Bob went on to represent Coach Holmgren in the NFL as Head Coach Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks, and as President of the Cleveland Browns.
Bob chose to become involved in sports management when he witnessed athletes and coaches being inundated with dubious offers and empty promises, many of whom were overworked and underpaid. Bob realized he could make a difference for individuals who wanted results, thus PSR has delivered the desired outcomes to our clients for decades.
