Manziel hires Kingsbury's agent

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has hired Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury’s agent to represent him as the former Heisman Trophy winner prepares for the NFL draft.

The public relations firm Sanderson Strategies Group said Manziel has hired Erik Burkhardt — a Tech graduate who advises Kingsbury — of Select Sports Group as his NFLPA-certified agent.

“Burkhardt will represent Manziel in all discussions and negotiations with the NFL and its teams,” the announcement said.

Burkhardt was one of several hires Manziel made for what Sanderson Strategies termed his “executive management group.”
