Believe it or not, 76ers big man Nerlens Noel has more going on right now than just rehabbing his knee and retooling his jump shot. Off the court Noel is making a few business moves and recently signed on as as an athlete advisor with CoachUp, a Boston-based organization that utilizes an online marketplace to match athletes with private coaches.
Noel is the latest of a long line of Beantown area professional athletes who have joined the ranks of CoachUp to impart their wisdom. The 76er with the classic high top fade will be working alongside other stars on CoachUp’s Athlete Advisory Council such as former Red Sox’s outfielder Gabe Kapler (CoachUp investor) and legendary Boston Bruins player, turned team president Cam Neely.
In a recent interview with Sara Castellanos of the Boston Business Journal, Noel said of his new appointment, “I wanted to be able to have an impact.”
