After graduating from law school, Pat Dye, Jr. started representing NFL players in 1987. The son of former UGA All American and College Hall of Fame Coach Pat Dye founded what is now SportsTrust Advisors in the basement of his home in January of 1994. Just 10 months later in November of 1994, Dye moved from his basement to beautiful offices overlooking Buckhead on the 16th floor of Tower Place.
Today, with more than 100 years combined experience working with athletes, SportsTrust has represented dozens of first round NFL draft picks, Pro Bowlers, All Pros and MVP’s. These players include current and future NFL Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith, Brian Urlacher, DeMarcus Ware and Geno Atkins. Dye and his partner of nearly 20 years, Bill Johnson, currently represent 50 NFL players, including 10 current Pro Bowlers, such as Atkins, DeMarco Murray, Dont’a Hightower, Eddie Lacy, Andrew Whitworth, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Kyle Williams and others.

"I have known Pat and dealt with him going all the way back to when we drafted Emmitt Smith in 1990. We have done a lot of business with Pat and his partner Bill Johnson on a number of players through the years, including Emmitt, DeMarcus Ware, DeMarco Murray, Keith Brooking and others. Pat and Bill are strong advocates for their clients, they’re always professional and well prepared. Every one of their players that we have had is a high character individual, which speaks highly of Pat, Bill and SportsTrust."
