Teague Egan's Agent Certification Revoked; Trojans Rejoice

According to the Twitter feed of Charles Robinson, who as a Yahoo! reporter is a natural source for all scandalous news concerning USC football, the NFL Players' Association has revoked the certification of Teague Egan, the nauseatingly-named agent-like substance who got Dillon Baxter's eligibility suspended (albeit briefly) for a cross-campus golf cart ride.

[UPDATE] The NFLPA has released a statement confirming the revocation:

The NFLPA’s Committee on Agent Regulation and Discipline (CARD) revoked the Certification of NFLPA Contract Advisor Teague Egan today for violating numerous provisions of the NFLPA’s Agent Regulations when he provided an improper benefit under NCAA rules by giving University of Southern California player Dillon Baxter a ride in his company’s golf cart, resulting in Baxter being suspended for USC’s game against Oregon State in November. He did so after being advised by USC officials the week before that giving such rides was an improper benefit under NCAA rules. He also is alleged to have placed misleading information on his agency’s website about his relationship with a Southern California attorney.

Under the Regulations, Egan now has the opportunity to have an expedited appeal if he so chooses.

Appeals process or no, it's hard to imagine the NFLPA reversing field on this decision, not with cleanup efforts in college football so publicly ongoing. Without it, Teague Egan is once again just some sterling prat with a golf cart. And after one look at this video, it's hard to argue that's about what he deserves.
