Celebrating Super Bowl championships has become an annual tradition for NFL coaches and executives agent Bob LaMonte.
He’s going for seven in a row when the Chiefs play the 49ers on Sunday.
LaMonte, who represents Chiefs general manager Brett Veach, coach Andy Reid and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, has represented the winning team’s head coach, general manager or top executive each year since Philadelphia beat New England on Feb. 4, 2018.
His streak began with two clients: then-Eagles coach Doug Pederson and GM Howie Roseman. It continued with Nick Caserio, the vice president of player personnel for the Patriots, who beat the Rams the next year.
Reid won his first Super Bowl with the Chiefs after the 2019 season. LaMonte represents Buccaneers GM Jason Licht, whose team prevented Kansas City from repeating following the COVID-impacted 2020 season.
LaMonte had both head coaches in the Super Bowl when Sean McVay and the Rams beat Zac Taylor and the Bengals.
It was Reid, Veach and the Chiefs again last year over Roseman and the Eagles.
One of the cool perks is LaMonte’s clients give him a Super Bowl ring.
“It’s a nice thing. I don’t deserve them,” he said. “But, my name’s on them so I gotta keep them.”
LaMonte also has four World Series rings, two from Toronto and two from St. Louis. He represented Blue Jays pitchers Dave Stieb and Pat Hentgen and Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter.
That’s quite a career for a man who considers himself an academic more than an agent. The 79-year-old LaMonte never took a law or business class and was a high school history teacher before one of his former students, Rich Campbell, asked for representation in 1981.
LaMonte and his wife, Lynn, started Professional Sports Representation, Inc., as a part-time venture and he’s negotiated over $3 billion in contracts over the past four decades. He currently represents seven head coaches and seven general managers. That’s a whopping 22% of all the people in those positions.
