Professor Michael McCann in Sports Illustrated:

Professor Michael McCann of Mississippi College School of Law has just been signed to be the resident "Sports and the Law" columnist for Sports Illustrated. His first column, on Michael Vick, is here.

Mike, as readers may already be aware, is one of the gurus behind the Sports Law Blog.

Sports Illustrated has not indicated whether it will have to hire a second legal analyst just to keep up with the legal issues of the Cincinnati Bengals (ok, I had to work a little pro-Steelers jingoism in here somewhere).

Congratulations to Mike for this high-profile writing gig and be sure to bookmark his column.
