Rice Teams With Houston Texans for Course on Running an NFL Team
Want to learn the ins and outs of running an NFL franchise on the business side? Rice University has teamed up with the Houston Texans to offer a course on doing just that.
Rice students who are studying sports management can take this semester's course designed to teach them the business aspects of running a team taught by Houston Texans management along with Rice faculty. The weekly course will be held at the Texans' management offices, and will offer lessons on ticketing, public relations, event management, human relations, and other aspects of running a team.
The only thing missing are lessons on coaching and player personnel.
The Texans kick off the regular season this Monday (Sept. 9) at the New Orleans Saints. Pregame begins at 5:40 pm on KLUB Classic Rock 106.9!
