Bob LaMonte

Is it time to start discussing Bob LaMonte and where he fit's into the mess that is the Houston Texans? It is easy to hate on Jack Easterby and it appears he is fast becoming the "Littlefinger" of the Texans Game of Thrones being played out before our eyes. Is our current predicament the brainchild of Easterby or is there a shadow figure behind the scenes pulling the strings.

I think it is possible, looking at who Bob LaMonte represents, how they all tie into the Texans franchise, it is easy to see how maybe Easterby is just an unwitting tool used to build the pyramid scheme of LaMonte personnel in Houston.

First the villain was BOB. Then Easterby. Maybe LaMonte needs to be scrutinized a bit more..

Who the deuce is Bob LaMonte?
Bob LaMonte is founder and CEO of Professional Sports Representation, Inc., the largest sports agency specializing in NFL coaches. His impressive current client list includes five NFL head coaches, 12 NFL coordinators, two college head coaches, and professional athletes. LaMonte, formerly a high school and college history teacher for 25 years, began his career as a part-time sports agent, and it wasn't until 1993 that he left teaching to become a full-time agent. He lives and works with his wife, Lynn, in Nevada.


Bob LaMonte is the President of PSR, having founded the company in 1979. Bob is one of the only sports representatives to have been a player, teacher, coach, agent, and author. Bob has mastered the art of negotiation, and is a true confidante. He has negotiated over $2.2 Billion in professional sports contracts during his career, and fully serves the needs of our clients.
Bob gained experience with athletic pressure as a football player at the University of Santa Clara, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in History. Upon graduation, he taught at San Jose State University and earned a Master’s Degree in United States Diplomatic History/Labor History. After earning his Master’s Degree, he taught U.S. History and coached varsity football at Oak Grove High School in San Jose, CA.
Bob’s foray into the business of football occurred when he represented Rich Campbell, a former student, as a first-round pick in the 1981 NFL Draft. Thereafter, Mike Holmgren sought Bob’s advice regarding career options. Bob went on to represent Coach Holmgren in the NFL as Head Coach Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks, and as President of the Cleveland Browns.
Bob chose to become involved in sports management when he witnessed athletes and coaches being inundated with dubious offers and empty promises, many of whom were overworked and underpaid. Bob realized he could make a difference for individuals who wanted results, thus PSR has delivered the desired outcomes to our clients for decades.

Impressive resume. Kinda' makes you wonder why he'd even bother to represent a lowly 'character coach' with no ambition. :thinking:

That's impressive. Can we stop with the narrative that he is involved in anything? It's as simple as Cal being dumb and allowing Easterby to weasel his way into being a confidant.

Because Easterby pays him, I could get him to represent me to if I go drop his retainer fee. He'd look at me like I'm crazy and possibly have security on stand by but he'd take my money.

Riiiiiiiiight :ok:

Prove it. Easy to do. Just write the company and show me their reply. If it's as easy as you say, then you should have no problem actually backing up your claim.

Otherwise, you come across as nothing but an Easterboy that's grasping at straws contrary to the words of one of the franchise's most respected figures.

"Since Jack Easterby has walk into the building nothing good has happened in/for the organization" ~ Andre Johnson

btw, Jack is the ONLY character coach in the NFL with an agent (although he's no longer a character coach but an actual front office executive. . .just like the ones that Bob LaMonte represents). But you're apparently the expert, so I look forward to your proof.

Or I could have far, far better things to do than prove something to random guy on a football forum. Question, do you ask everyone that makes any "claim" to prove it or is that just for people that you don't agree with? In fact why don't you prove your claim that he's the only character coach with an agent.

Edit: Also I find it sad that a mod resorts to things like "Easterboy" but then that does explain why so few have any respect for others opinions and posts if that is the example set.

ohhhh, so sorry to have triggered you. lol :fingergun:

Corrosion posted a list of all of Bob Lamonte's clients. Not a single character coach on the list.

But, ask and you shall receive (although I know your demand was not sincere and you will ignore all evidence contrary to your perspective)

Boston Sports Journal, June 18, 2019:

"When it comes to Easterby, this is a man who has purported himself to be a man of the cloth, and the type of person you can confide your deepest secrets and fears in — and he does do that. He's not fraud or charlatan. But those aren't usually the type of people who move around the NFL very often — they hook on with one coach and stick with him. If they depart, it's usually for a lifetime college job or into the business world for bigger dollars.

They certainly don't hire an agent, like Easterby did with Lamonte, who is one of the best in the business at leveraging teams to the benefit of his clients."


I've heard it from other sources, as well, like Peter King and Ian Rapoport, but it's most difficult to find the exact video clips of their many appearances.

And please accept my most deepest and most sincere apology for the Easterboy snark, because I know that I need to be much more delicate around those with more sensitive feelings.

Sarcasm is just so much dern fun sometimes. :joker:

So much for attack the post not the poster.

As to your post, ok fine I’ll assume Greg Bedard did his due diligence and actually researched it and isn’t just giving his thoughts because I don’t care that much, still not sure why you do. Oh and if are going to pull from an article then post a link to it so people can read for themselves.


This is from that same article:

“The first thing to know about Easterby is you won't find many people at One Patriot Place who will say a bad word about him or the work he did when he was employed by the team. He was part chaplain, friend, confidant, coach and scout, and he connected with a lot of employees and their families. Easterby is universally regarded as a great person who had a real impact on the entire organization.”

But here is the part I don’t understand, let’s say you are right and he does want to be a GM, so what? Pretty much everyone that works in an NFL front office wants to be a GM. Why does him wanting to be a GM bother you more than the other hundreds of people trying to climb the NFL corporate ladder to be a GM?

As good as this guy is at bringing guys where he wants them, why wasn't he hired as GM?

So it feels like the Texans are really screwed. If they really believe in one of the clients he represents then that will add fuel to the fire but if they hire someone the players want, the coach will never have the support of the front office
