Former Broadneck standout Matthew Centrowitz has signed a multi-year endorsement contract with Nike, his representatives at PACE Sports Management have announced.
Centrowitz -- who won bronze in the 1,500 meters at the world championships this past summer -- announced in November that he was turning pro and skipping his final year at Oregon in order to better prepare for the upcoming Olympics.
"I am very excited to sign a professional contract with Nike and become part of the Nike family," Centrowitz said in a news release. "They have many great athletes and I hope my achievements will make the brand proud in the years to come."Nike is based in Oregon, and Centrowitz will train with the Nike Oregon Project coached by Alberto Salazar with the assistance of Andy Powell, who coached Centrowitz throughout his college career.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
