Dinkytown Athletes is a community of University of Minnesota athletics fans, alumni and supporters. Our organization was born as a result of recently passed NIL (name, image and likeness) legislation. NIL opens the doors for student athletes to promote themselves, and accept money in exchange for NIL approved activities. As an NIL collective, our charter is to help student athletes navigate NIL opportunities and help our local business community and fan base with never before seen access to our U of MN athletes.
DTA’s mission is to support our U of M Athletes with top notch NIL opportunities allowing them to build their brand and showcase their talent on campus and beyond.
Robert Gag is Co-Founder and Vice President of Dinkytown Athletes. Rob is responsible for business development, internal structure, and finance for Dinkytown Athletes. Previously, Rob was CEO and partner at Tierney in St. Paul, MN. Prior to his position as CEO, Rob held a variety of sales management positions throughout his 25 plus years with the company. Rob is a lifelong Gopher Fan along with his family of five and is a long time resident of Stillwater, Minnesota.
