DSU signs deal with Nike

CLEVELAND — Delta State athletes will begin wearing Nike apparel in the 2011-2012 season.

The school has announced the signing of a multi-year agreement with the shoe and apparel manufacturer.

Athletics director Jeremy McClain says the deal creates a greater level of visibility and potential for student-athletes, coaches and fans.

Nike will supply a line of DSU practice apparel, staff clothing and game uniforms featuring the company’s swoosh logo.

McClain says the deal allows for a grace period to implement the new program and to end any current apparel contracts.
