Houston Cougars basketball team signs 7-figure NIL deal with Mattress Mack

The number-two-ranked Houston Cougars basketball team has signed a seven-figure deal with Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale.

NIL deals have been a big movement in college sports since they were initiated in 2021.

"I’m a huge Kelvin Sampson fan & felt like it was time to do this NIL deal for 7-figures with the Cougars", Mack said.


Mack also said he had two children who attended the University of Houston and has always been a fan.

The seven-figure deal will benefit the Cougars basketball team.
