Mark Steinberg

Tiger Woods’ agent | Excel Sports partner | Class of 1992

A word to the wise for future freshmen, from a high-powered sports agent:

“Don’t miss classes early in the semester," says  Mark Steinberg, who learned that lesson the hard way. "Once you start skipping, it is hard to get yourself to that class.”

Steinberg, a one-time Flyin’ Illini walk-on, is a partner at Excel Sports Management, where his clients include golf’s Tiger Woods, Matt Kuchar and Danielle Kang.
