NEW YORK (AP) UCLA and Under Armour have agreed to an athletic shoe and apparel deal that will pay the school a record $280 million over 15 years.
Under Armour posted an announcement on Twitter welcoming UCLA to the Baltimore-based company and the school announced later that it had agreed to the largest apparel deal in the history of the NCAA.
"UCLA has always been about challenging the status quo and breaking through barriers," UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said in a statement. "Under Armour shares those core values. They are about more than simply making athletes look good, they constantly pursue innovation in order to make athletes better. "
