Life after Georgia football is already in motion for quarterback Aaron Murray, who saw his college career end with a torn ACL in his home finale.
Murray is scheduled to make an appearance to sign autographs at Georgia Square Mall in Athens on Dec. 14, the same day the Bulldogs begin bowl practices. Murray’s signature at the 1 p.m. event will go for $35. A portion of the proceeds will go to Extra Special People, an organization that Murray works with that provides support for those with special needs.
The Southeastern Conference’s career passing yardage and touchdown passing leader also will hold a four-hour “Aaron Murray MVP Youth Football Camp,” Feb. 8 in Athens for $100 for the four-hour camp. That will include a photo opportunity and individual instruction from Murray for campers ages 6 to 15.
Both events are organized by Dan Everett of Everett Sports Marketing, which is handling Murray’s marketing representation. Murray has not yet decided on an agent as he prepares for the NFL draft, according to Everett.
Murray has given up his college eligibility. He plans to travel to Georgia’s bowl game and be with the team, but on his own accord, according to Everett.
Murray’s own Twitter profile has been updated to include “For marketing opportunities please email firstname.lastname@example.org . Murray is available for corporate events, motivational speaking and endorsements.
